Sisterhood Is Forever cover

Laura Hershey is proud to be among the authors included in this new book, Sisterhood Is Forever: the Women's Anthology for a New Millennium, edited by Robin Morgan.

Washington Square Press (a division of Simon and Schuster) is proud to announce:

Thirty years after best-selling author Robin Morgan’s groundbreaking phosphoric anthology, Sisterhood Is Powerful -- named by The American Librarians’ Association one of “The 100 Most Influential Books of the 20th Century” -- and almost twenty years since Morgan’s now-classic international collection, Sisterhood Is Global -- comes the landmark new collection for the 21st Century:

Sisterhood Is Forever: the Women's Anthology for a New Millennium -- with over 60 original, brand-new essays Morgan commissioned from well-known feminist leaders plus energetic Gen X and Y activists--is a composite mural of the female experience in America: where we’ve been, where we are, where we’re going.

The stunning scope of topics ranges from reproductive, health, and environmental, spirituality, the law, the media, and academia. The deliberately audacious mix of contributors spans different generations, races, ethnicities, and sexual preferences: CEOs, housewives, rock stars, farmers, scientists, prostituted women, politicians, women in prison, firefighters, disability activists, artists, flight attendants, an army general, an astronaut, an anchorwoman, even a pair of teens who edit a girls’ magazine. Each article celebrates the writer’s personal voice -- her humor, passion, anger, and the integrity of her perspective -- while offering the latest data on women’s status, political analysis, new “how-to” tools for activism, and visionary yet practical strategies for the future -- strategies needed now more than ever. Robin Morgan’s own contributions are everything her readers expect: prophetic, powerfully argued, unsentimentally lyrical. From her introduction: “The book you hold in your hands is a tool for the future -- a future also in your hands.”
