Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women

In Elizabeth Wurtzel's follow up to "Prozac Nation", the coked-up author blazes through a history of sexism and sexuality in the West, and examines 20th century attitudes towards "difficult women" who refuse to play by the rules and become feminist icons while often ending up alone, suicidal, or confined to prison or mental wards, too insatiable to accept "no" for an answer.
