Prisoners of Men's Dreams: Striking Out for a New Feminine Future

Suzanne Gordon, Author First Glance Books $19.95 (324p) ISBN 978-0-316-32106-8
Some 100 women contribute their stories in this exploration of the effects of contemporary feminism. The women we hear from are confused; some are disillusioned, but all, no matter their socal status, have problems reconciling professional responsibilities with personal obligations. Gordon ( Lonely in America ) emphasizes that women have discovered the tyranny of the marketplace, as well as the belief that ``women do not change the world by becoming more like men.'' The challenge, she maintains, is no longer finding role models but defining a new feminist future. This appraisal of women's uncertainty offers realistic guidelines and positive suggestions for true liberation: ``We must change our world if we want to make our lives easier.'' (Jan.)
