About this title


"... a wonderful, riotous book." —Rita Mae Brown

"It’s witty, charming, incisive—and these are the low points!" —Loretta Swit

From Virginia Woolf to Nora Ephron, Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Ntozake Shange, Fanny Fern to Gloria Steinem, Pulling Our Own Strings shows us the roots, the history, and the rich variety of feminist humor and satire.

From the Back Cover:

Feminist humor is based on the perception that societies have generally been organized as systems of oppression and exploitation, and that the largest (but not the only) oppressed group has been the female. It is also based on conviction that such oppression is undesirable and unnecessary. It is a humor based on visions of change.
