Accidental Feminists

Jane Caro
How one generation became feminists—by accident
Women over fifty-five are of the generation that changed everything. We didn't expect to. Or intend to. We weren't brought up much differently from the women who came before us, and we rarely identified as feminists, although almost all of us do now.

Accidental Feminists is our story. It explores how the world we lived in—with the pill and a regular pay cheque—transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world. It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.

A humane and important book about contemporary women’s lives, including the perilous economic predicament of many older women, written in a way that is warm, funny and accessible”
Anne Manne

Caro helps us see the astonishing achievement of these revolutionaries dwelling amongst us and reveals why the world has never known anything like them.”
Ellen Fanning

Caro offers a generational bridge for readers who identify across all three waves of feminism: a way to understand what came before, to better see where to go from here.”
