On Women brings together Susan Sontag’s most fearless and incisive writing on women, a crucial aspect of her work that has not until now received the attention it deserves.

For the most part written in the 1970s during the height of second-wave feminism, Sontag’s essays are strikingly relevant to our contemporary conversations. At times powerfully in sync and at others powerfully at odds with them, they are always characteristically original in their examinations of the ‘biological division of labour’, the double-standard for ageing and the dynamics of women’s powerlessness and women’s power.

As Merve Emre writes in her introduction, ‘They offer us the spectacle of a ferocious intellect setting itself to the task at hand: to articulate the politics and aesthetics of being a woman in the United States, the Americas and the world.’

‘One of America’s greatest public intellectuals’ Observer

‘Susan Sontag offers enough food for thought to satisfy the most intellectual of appetites’The Times

‘At the time she died, she was America’s best-known public intellectual. To my mind, she was also the most exemplary’ John Gray,New Statesman
