It was an OK story but if feels as if it's only there to plug in every type of feminist and anti-feminist, which she manages to do quite well.

The personal is made political for college student Greer Kadetsky one night when she stands up to ask a question, to make her voice heard, to join the fight for fairness and equality. Encouraged by her idol to pursue a life defending these principles, Greer discovers the difficulties and compromises required of even the most dedicated idealist. Wolitzer’s novel presents sympathetic and all-too-human characters battling to do the best they can while staying true to themselves and to those they love.

Just a normal story or a normal female and how she found her outside voice. It was okay storytelling but a boring story.

No passion, the characters were stiff, and the story dragged on and on.

I wanted to like this story, and parts of it I did but, for me, it didn't have the depth of a good literary novel nor the peaks of a gripping story. The telling of Greer's various times in her life, her relationships, successes and failures seems a mild slice of life.
