Editorial Reviews

Review

"A searingly honest debut memoir by a leader in the fight for a woman's right to “legally gain and exercise reproductive choice―the power of life and death.” ―Kirkus

"From her decision to adopt a child to her love affairs, this is the story of one woman's quest to live fully. Opinionated, fierce, bold and brash, Intimate Wars chronicles Hoffman's efforts to improve women's lives and influence history. She deserves our gratitude." ―Truthout

"Merle Hoffman's gorgeous memoir vibrates with raw power and nerve. Her tremendous empathy for the women whose lives she has touched, and her unfailing courage in defending our right to abortion, are both inspiring and humbling." ―Jennifer Baumgardner, author of Manifesta

"At last, we have Merle Hoffman's bold and courageous memoir of living on the front lines of the abortion wars. Merle never turned away from the harshest battles or denied the most painful truths." ―Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of Eleanor Roosevelt

"Merle Hoffman has blazed a freedom trail while saving countless women's lives along the way" ―Bill Baird, founder of the Pro-Choice League

"Intimate Wars is a fascinating personal narrative told from the epicenter of abortion politics and service delivery. Hoffman illustrates her unwavering commitment to the heart of the issue: the power of every woman to make her own childbearing decisions." ―Gloria Feldt, author of No Excuses and former president of Planned Parenthood
