From the Gender Diary: Living with Dorothy Dinnerstein (1923–1992)
This is a personal essay offering anecdotes that illustrate Dorothy Dinnerstein’s analysis of how sexism works in the daily exchanges between men and women. Dinnerstein hauls these common events into history and argues that the dynamics between men and women are not eternal but are subject to change.
