Fire with Fire The New Female Power and How to Use It

S that the feminist movement has to change if it is to speak to a new generation of women and that even as women are gaining ground than ever before a wariness of feminist orthodoxies keeps them away from t First half of the book was going to be a 5 and then it went downhill What I liked about Wolf s feminism was the focus on getting females into politics and grabbing power she called it power feminism The idea that we deserve recognition rewards money choice to be sexual or not etc because we are humans not because we are females is really important and I loved it What I didn t like was her concept of victim feminism At first I understood the distinction between it and power feminism victim feminism is the idea that woman are just so good and kind and we should give them rights because they are angels and we shall be nice to get our rights from people who took them away for us in the first place But then she started victim blaming Yup Pissed me off intensely Firstly the idea that in a domestic violence situation females should get themselves out of it when in reality society and the perpetrator has ripped them apart psychologically that they can t fight back because they believe they deserve this criminally treatment Next Wolf writes that men should understand no but it s also up to the females job to ACTUALLY SAY NO Yup she said that Not taking into consideration that no one is ever taught bodily autonomy and we should accept anything that others do to us as fine I seriously see red reading that She also talks about how females are getting guns in America to protect themselves therefore we can t be victims in rape or physical assault because we can protect ourselves and should like violence is the answer also sounds so much like trump when he says if people had guns mass shootings wouldn t occur Lastly her statistics are all from the US UK and Australia And her future suggestions are definitely targeted to middleupper class western females No intersectionality at all She did mention that she was talking about females who have the choice like those in western countries but she doesn t try to explain or help the other 23 of the worlds population And believe me there are impressive political statistics from Asianmiddle east countries On the whole an interesting read but uite disappointed because I loved the beauty myth

He only movement capable of putting political clout behind their personal success The book represents a call to women to throw off centuries of conditioning about the relationship between power and feminini Fire with Fire provides an excellent reminder that what we think we know about women and how they differ from men is based on adaptations imposed by thousands of years of patriarchy It stands for the proposition that the differences we see are not innate and that true feminism supports the freedom of each individual to discover and express their true selves

    This book is excellent and I recommend it to everybody Wolf analyzes in a clear differentiated and personally honest manner the double standards and intellectual dishonesty of a particular branch of feminism that which cast women in the roles of eternal saintly victims and declares men to be the enemy and how this victim feminism has damaged and still damages the struggle for women's rights She makes it clear t

    I read this book uite a few years ago and it changed the way I thought about feminism So much of what was written previous to Fire With Fire was about how women have been victimized Naomi Wolf turned that attitude on its head with a powerful paradigm shift As long as we think of ourselves as victims we remain powerless

    A great read for anyone raising a girl I feel like this book would serve parents better than many ‘parenting ‘ books out there The author really unpacks the ways boys and girls are socialized so differently in regards to leader

    Although not one of Wolf's popular books written in 1993 her follow up to The Beauty Myth it is to date my favourite book on feminism Wolf disseminates and contrasts two schools of modern feminist thinking patterns victim feminism and power feminism The differences can be subtle or stark and Wolf lists copious examples of each Unsurprisingly

    I enjoy Naomi Wolf's writing It took me awhile to get through this book mainly because the writing is serious Though this book was written in the 90s the content is still extremely relevant Naomi Wolf deconstructs the feminist movement into the concept of victim feminism versus the concept of power feminism She discusses women's relationships with one another and with power and how the 90s sparked a movement among women when Anita
