Praise for A Politically Incorrect Feminist:

“Phyllis Chesler stands out among women in general and feminists in particular. In this dark age of identity politics, when the rights of millions of women are sacrificed at the altar of intersectionality, Phyllis Chesler keeps us all focused on universal human rights for all women. This book is a must-read for all people who truly care about the rights of women.” -Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of Infidel

"Very tough going (alas, women are human, warts and all), but a Need-to-Read.” - Margaret Atwood

"In A Politically Incorrect Feminist, Phyllis Chesler vividly recounts the glory days of the women’s movement of the 1960s and ’70s, of which she was a prominent leader...Chesler gave a voice to the vulnerable, including psychiatric patients, mothers deprived of child custody, and abused and prostituted women. In the culture of balkanized fundamentalisms in which we currently live, Chesler’s critique of the feminist movement she helped build is both brave and painfully relevant. Chesler writes in her authentic, jargon-free voice, telling it like it was. She’s as passionate a freethinking feminist as she ever was. Nowadays, freethinking may be one of the few bulwarks against the thought police of the left and the proto-fascist lies of the right. Chesler’s genius is her refusal to submit to tribalism." -- Los Angeles Review of Books, Miriam Greenspan
