Abstract

What does it mean to be a feminist today? Why do some women become feminists and others do not? At a time when 'feminist' is a label that many young women shun, Stepping Out of Line offers an insightful account of the struggle of becoming and being a feminist. Cheryl Hercus offers a compelling new argument for why some women embrace feminism and why others do not. In doing so, she moves beyond the stereotypes of what feminism means while providing a new understanding of feminist social movements of resistance and collective action.
