Sisterhood Is Forever: The Women's Anthology for a New Millennium is a 2003 anthology of feminist writings edited by Robin Morgan. Sisterhood Is Forever has over fifty women contributing sixty original essays written specifically for it.[1][2] Sisterhood is Forever is the follow up to Sisterhood Is Global, which itself is the follow up to Sisterhood is Powerful.[3] Sisterhood Is Forever shows the reader feminism's emphases and accomplishments as of 2003.[4] Essays range in tone from scholarly to narrative and provide both conservative and liberal view points.[5] The focus is on feminism in the United States.[6] The book addresses why feminism is still needed in the 21st century, providing "alarming" statistics about the status of women in the United States in Morgan's introduction.[7]

Reception[edit]

Sisterhood Is Forever was considered "multifaceted and compelling" by Publishers Weekly.[5] According to reviewer Kathy Davis, Robin Morgan's touch can be seen throughout the book, showing a clear sense of vision through her choices of essays and her footnotes.[6] While some critics felt that focusing on the U.S. was "problematic,"[6] others felt that it made sense, especially in the wake of 9/11.[7][8]
