‘A humane and important book about contemporary women’s lives, including the perilous economic
predicament of many older women, written in a way that is warm, funny and accessible.’
How one generation became feminist—by accident.
Women over fifty-five are of the generation that changed everything. We didn’t expect to. Or intend to.
We weren’t brought up much differently from the women who came before us, and we rarely identified as feminists, although almost all of us do now.
Accidental Feminists is our story. It explores how the world we lived in—with the pill and a regular pay cheque—transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world.
It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.
