I was a vegan before I read this, and I was a vegan before I read the Sexual Politics of Meat; but the personal nature of this book, written by fascinating, smart, inspirational women, gives it something special: the power to teach; to change someone's mind. The greatest compliment I can offer is that I learned something from this book -- some thingS, actually. For that, I am grateful. I highly recommend Defiant Daughters.
Also, men: read this book. It's for us, too.
(Thanks to Lantern for another great book! I am continually impressed with this publisher.)
