Nona Willis Aronowitz
“Though my mother was an early pro-sex feminist, I didn’t really know what feminism meant to me, to our generation. When I wrote Girldrive with my friend Emma Bee Bernstein, we definitely found a lot of young kick-ass feminists out there. They’re blogging. They’re out in the streets. They’re organizing.”
