Why are there so few women in politics? Why is public space, whether it’s the street or social media, still so inhospitable to women? What does Carrie Fisher have to do with Mary Wollstonecraft? And why is a wedding ceremony Satan’s playground?

 

These are some of the questions that bestselling author and acclaimed journalist Elizabeth Renzetti examines in her new collection of essays, Shrewed: A Wry and Closely Observed Look at the Lives of Women and Girls. Drawing upon decades of reporting on feminist issues, Shrewed is a book about feminism’s crossroads. From Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign to the quest for equal pay, from the lessons we can learn from old ladies to the future of feminism in a turbulent world, join us for a pointed look at how far we’ve come?and how far we have to go.
