Reckoning: The Epic Battle Against Sexual Abuse and Harassment by Linda R. Hirshman (2019)



Ex-library Hardcover with DJ in Good (G) condition. Light library markings, clean and straight. DJ wrapped in protective cover. A portion of the sale of this book will be donated to a local library. 

Linda Hirshman, acclaimed historian of social movements, delivers the sweeping story of the struggle leading up to #MeToo and beyond: from the first tales of workplace harassment percolating to the surface in the 1970s, to the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal—when liberal women largely forgave Clinton, giving men a free pass for two decades. Many liberals even resisted the movement to end rape on campus.

Nevertheless, legal, political, and cultural efforts, often spearheaded by women of color, were quietly paving the way for the take-down of abusers and harassers. Reckoning delivers the stirring tale of a movement catching fire as pioneering women in the media exposed the Harvey Weinsteins of the world and flooded the political landscape. This is a revelatory, essential social history.
