DeboraSparBOOKDebora Spar spent most of her life avoiding feminism: Raised after the tumult of the ’60s, she presumed the gender war was over, and women really could have it all. But she was wrong. Now the president of the all-woman Barnard College, Spar tells the story of her own awakening to the ongoing struggle for equality. Examining how women’s lives have—and have not—changed over the past 40 years, Spar, author of Wonder Women, identifies women’s modern, more-complex-than-ever challenges and asks: How far have women really come? And what will it take to get true equality for good?
