Summary: This bookoffers a novel, detailed and sensitive exploration of women's engagement with feminism. Centred on the themes of generations, hope, emotions and belonging, each chapter attends to the specific and particular practices of 'becoming feminist' via aseries of accessiblecase studies. Adopting a theoretical and methodological focus on narrative and memory, this original and absorbing work analysesthe various and complex ways in which feminism and its histories are received and processed by some feminist women today. Its focus on the specificity of experience disrupts overarching narratives of feminism and its histories, whilst acknowledging that such narratives are often used to sustain, defend and maintain a secure feminist identity. In doing so, it develops a growing body of work concerned with the relationships women forge to feminism's pasts, presents and futures, with a distinct focus on the stories feminist women tell about their lives. It will appeal to students and scholars ofsociology, psychosocial studies, gender studies, women's studies and cultural studies.
