“(r)Evolutionary Healing: Jamming with Culture and Shifting the Power”
by: Carly Stasko

This collection provides an interdisciplinary examination of young women’s multilayered lives. Contributors from fields such as education, gender and cultural studies, sociology, psychology and politics – as well as young women themselves – wrestle with both subculture theory and feminism as they attempt to understand contemporary strategies for connection and social action. They also offer insights into an understanding of how today’s young women conceive of their relationships and networks with other young women in the absence of older style feminist frameworks; and what their experiences can offer for the development of more relevant explanations of youths’ social and political identities and cultures.
