Reclaiming the Mainstream

Individualist Feminism Rediscovered

About the Book

Feminism today is largely associated with government intervention. But feminists were not always statists and collectivists.

Taylor calls on feminists to cherish and celebrate their tradition of individualism and equal rights. She applies that framework to such contemporary issues as censorship, sexual harassment, affirmative action, and reproductive choice. Published by Prometheus Books.

What Others Have Said

“An important contribution to the movement for individual rights, including women’s rights.”
—Nadine Strossen, President, American Civil Liberties Union

“I have been a feminist for a long time, but over the past few years I have felt more and more as thought I am without a home. Reclaiming the Mainstream has made me aware that I have roots, and they they are solidly planted in an individualist movement that goes back many years. This is a superb presentation and analysis.”
—Barbara Branden, Author, The Passion of Ayn Rand
