Reviews about The Women's Room (7):
Musical Aura Island
I don't remember if there was a tad bit of violence, sexual content, or which person the author uses. I read it more than thirty years ago, but I want to comment on it because I recently ordered it to give to an acquaintance who needs the lesson it provided me. This book made me think about my relationships with men for the first time and to say to myself, "Hey! Wait a minute!" I recommend it to anyone who is so caught up in whether or not the guy truly loves her, that she forgets to ask herself how she really feels about him!
This is one of those books that I read every year. I find something I missed the year before. Marilyn French's prose is exquisite and highly readable. The novel centers around Mira, an attractive and very intelligent woman born in the late 20's to very rigid and 'repectable' parents. Despite her convential upbringing, Mira reads voraciously and forms opinions different from those of her parents. She briefly attends college and meets Norm at a neighborhood party. She marries him (this is the 1950's) and they have two boys in quick succession--Normie and Clark. Norm is a medical student and Mira stays home and takes care of the kids and house.After Norm graduates, they move to a suburb and she begins to make friends with the other women in the neighborhood, who are basically like her, but some have 'secret' lives that French explores in depth. By this time, (the late 50's and early '60's) Mira begins to realize how stifling her life is and she and Norm grow further apart. He asks for a divorce (he's been having an affair with a younger woman---surprise!) Mira puts the boys in a private school and moves to Cambridge (she's accepted at Harvard); the year is 1968 and she's a fish out of water until she meets other graduate students and an attractive man named Ben. Of course, Ben is the hero of the novel because he, unlike Norm, is a wonderful lover and Mira experiences her first orgasm. The women she befriends in Cambridge are altogether different from the ones she knew in suburbia, particularly Valerie and her teenager daughter, Chris. I think Ms. French tends to lionize Valerie; I don't like the character because she's obnoxious and profane and thinks 'all men are rapists'; get a grip! Mira receives her Ph.d in English and develops a deeper relationship with her sons. She and Ben break up when Ben wants to marry her and have a baby. Highly recommended!
This is an old classic that I read years ago and I just had to buy a copy and re-read it. This book speaks for women and the women's movement. It is empowering. If you are going through a bad time, it can make you angry and strong and determined. If you are in a good place in your relationships, it may seem too bitter. But this book truly goes inside the issues and the feelings and the world of many of the women who led the women's movement. I recommend it.
I didn't just read this book in the early 80's; I devoured it. It was recommended to me by chance from someone I met in a bookstore and I had no idea what it was going to be about. The woman told me it would change my life. Not very many people feel so strongly about a book so I purchased it and started a 'journey'.
My experience with men had ranged from abusive to nurturing and socially I was in the same boat as many other young women coming out of college. I was starting a family and a new career. There were some very real challenges and obstacles in my path, lots of unresolved issues running around my head and I never read anything that pulled it all together like this book did. My eyes had to be opened by something and this book was 'it'.
Did it change my life? Most certainly. Was the outcome positive? If you asked those around me in the aftermath, the answers would have varied... some noted a new outspoken nature, others suggested I should just shut up. Being called a militant feminist one day left me speechless because I would never have claimed that label. I admit I was jaded and angry for a while but that dissolved as I took the parts of the book I needed and discarded the rest.
Funny how a book can change your behavior.
Honestly, I needed to wake from my former accommodating, whimpering existence and stand up for myself in my marriage and at work. This book helped me do that. How so? By somehow empowering me with courage to say what I felt and knew to be right. Because I could identify so strongly with some of the characters it gave me a sense of sisterhood I'd never known.
While I agreed with most of the subjects covered in the book, I can't say I ever did think all men were bad nor did I ever come around to thinking my views on abortion excluded me from being a feminist. (I unapologetically think abortion should only be done in the extreme cases, that contraception should be widely available or free, and is where the real choice is.)
Some said Mira was shallow in other reviews, even deserved her situation. I disagree. She was a product of her generation and her environment. And her marriage didn't work out. Back then, divorce provoked many stereotypical responses like being shunned from the neighborhood, gossip, harsh words. My own mother divorced in the mid 60's and suddenly the children in our little neighborhood were no longer allowed to play with me. I can't imagine what Mom had to endure.
27 years later I might find the Women's Room to be an angry rant or almost a whine but this is not a criticism. No, it's more of an opportunity to look back and see just how far we have come. That's why I'm going to read this book again. I know where I was when I read it the first time nearly 30 years ago and it will be interesting to see how I feel about it now that I'm equipped with the wisdom that only comes with age.
And to those who said French's book is no longer relevant, well, thank God so many things women used to endure are no longer relevant. Look on it as history then, a lesson for an age when women's lives were much different than they are today.
This is my third time reading it - at 19, 29 and now in my 50's. Every time, I get something different out of it. Although it's always been one of my favorite books, I realize that it may take a bit of effort for some to get into it. I do think it's worth the effort, though. It's most definitely a book for women although I think men would get a lot out of it too. This book makes you think and really look at the women around you with different eyes.
A quintessential book on the women's movement of th '70s. Younger women should check out how far we've come, but have we? A re-read for me...
I consider Marilyn French’s The Women’s Room a “must read” for anyone interested in the historical background of 2nd Wave Feminism. This book documents an eerie and unyielding portrait of the frustrations, heartbreak & liimitations experienced by a group of women. Their professional, intellectual, reproductive, and familial constrictions, and (lack of) equality dictates a tragedy of struggles within 20th century North America.
