Reviews

With intelligence and flair, Gen-X feminist, journalist and playwright Kamen (Feminist Fatale) presents an exhaustive study of the sexual mores of the women in her generation... Critical yet nonjudgmental, Kamen's lively book is a welcome primer on contemporary sexual ethics... It's sure to be a hit among feminists of all ages even while it raises eyebrows in other camps." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY "...at times startling and at the very least amusing...reading it is an education. And now we know at least some of what educated women stand to gain." --The New York Times Book Review "A refreshing survey...Offers lucid analyses of the changing content and understanding of sex." -- The Chicago Tribune "Chronicles the complex ways young women understand and experience sexuality today. In this collection, Kamen draws on interviews, reports, and studies to weave an analysis of how Gen-X women define and adopt sex roles and gendered responses to an increasingly sexualized world... Kamen concludes, rather convincingly, that young women are finally beginning to make their own rules, instead of blindly obeying those made by others and, as a result, are leading more fulfilling lives." --MS. MAGAZINE "If women's sexual mores become more like men's, is that progress? Paula Kamen seems to think so, based on HER WAY... Kamen backs her assertions with a panoramic breadth of scholarship-pretty much every major piece of sex research for the last hundred years shows up in HER WAY, including some fascinating surveys of women born in the nineteenth century." --NERVE "The next time you're having an argument with some asshole over the fact that women can have just as high a sex drive and the same ability to know their desires as men, just pull out this book... It's a great book to help you get an overall feeling for the sexual attitudes of chicks these days... a must-have for any feminist home." --BUST "It's about time! Read this book." --Shere Hite, The Hite Report "At last, the torch has been passed! Paula Kamen follows women's struggle for sexual pleasure and self-affirmation into a new generation - and finds it healthier and more vibrant than ever. Young women will be fascinated by Her Way. Older ones will be amazed." --Barbara Ehrenreich "At last, a book about young women's sexual behavior that's actually written by a young woman! Paula Kamen documents women's sexual truths without judgment and-more important-without all the wrongheaded, double-standard-laden assumptions that all too often plague writing on this topic. Kamen brings the focus back where it should be: on women's own views, rather than others' views of them." --Lisa Miya-Jervis, Bitch Magazine "A bold new look at female sexuality in America today. Based on years of meticulous research, Paula Kamen has produced a fascinating, important study of how young women are redefining their roles and relationships in a post-boomer world." --Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking "Lively and entertaining, honoring the intimate voices of a diversity of women, Her Way is an authoritative study of our long slow journey toward sexual autonomy. Kamen is a savvy third wave feminist who has done her homework. The book is a link between generations, and a major stepping stone toward fuller liberation. This is feminism for the 21st century!" --Barbara Seaman, coeditor of For Women Only: Our Guide to Health Empowerment "Intellectual, political, and compassionate, Her Way shows that the freedom to live and love by our own standards-with men on our good side-is the way toward the social change that, truly, begins in our social lives." --Lynn Harris, author of Breakup Girl to the Rescue! A Superhero's Guide to Love, and Lack Thereof "Gives women cause to celebrate! Her Way shows how, for perhaps the first time in history, a generation of young women is truly defining sex on its own terms. Her nuanced analysis of this quiet but undeniable trend is optimistic while not shying away from the problems that remain, including the inertia of a mainstream popular culture that insists on portraying women as sexy rather than as sexual beings in their own right." --Lisa Douglass, coauthor of Are We Having Fun Yet? The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Sex "Lively and entertaining, honoring the intimate voices of a diversity of women, Her Way is an authoritative study of our long slow journey toward sexual autonomy. Kamen is a savvy third wave feminist who has done her homework. The book is a link between generations, and a major stepping stone toward fuller liberation. This is feminism for the 21st century!" --Barbara Seaman, Co-editor of For Women Only: Our Guide to Health Empowerment
