    DescriptionThe contributors to this important new collection offer a vision of contemporary feminism that runs counter to and goes beyond the dominant attitudes of the feminist orthodoxy. Basing their arguments on individual rights and personal responsibility, the contributors to Liberty for Women offer surprising views on a wide range of issues that confront modern women: self-defense, sexual freedom, reproduction, economic well-being, the promise of technology, and the place of traditional values, including the family. This new feminism, for example, asserts the right of gun ownership, champions the free market as the best hope for women's prosperity, defends abortion rights, and values traditions. It sees choice as the key for all women, from housewives to CEOs, from prostitutes to mothers. The contributors include Camille Paglia, Norma Jean Almodovar, Matthew Y. Biscan, Lois Copeland, Janis Cortese, Richard A. Epstein, Faith Gibson, Mimi Gladstein, Wendy McElroy, Martha C. Nussbaum, Ellen Frankel Paul, Rita J. Simon, Richard W. Stevens, Nadine Strossen, Alexander Tabarrok, Hugo Tuefel III, and Cathy Young. Liberty for Women is an eye-opening collection that is certain to challenge, annoy, and entertain. Published in association with The Independent Institute.

Kleinfeld, Director of Northern Studies and Professor of Psychology, University of Alaska All women share a love of liberty...all should have the courage to embrace this book. -- Wendy Kaminer, Senior Editor, American Prospect; author of Fearful Freedom: Women's Flight from Equality A matchless book on the most important issues facing women now and in the future -- Christina Hoff Sommers, resident scholar, American Enterprise Institute A must-read for anyone interested in issues of equality and sexual politics. -- Christie Hefner, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Playboy Enterprises, Inc Lively and provocative...Liberty for Women adds immensely to the debate on the role of women in contemporary life. -- Linda L.
