あらすじ・解説

From the New York Times best-selling author of A Long Petal of the Sea comes “a bold exploration of womanhood, feminism, parenting, aging, love and more” (Associated Press).

The Soul of a Woman is Isabel Allende’s most liberating book yet.” (Elle)

“When I say that I was a feminist in kindergarten, I am not exaggerating,” begins Isabel Allende. As a child, she watched her mother, abandoned by her husband, provide for her three small children without “resources or voice.” Isabel became a fierce and defiant little girl, determined to fight for the life her mother couldn’t have.

As a young woman coming of age in the late 1960s, she rode the second wave of feminism. Among a tribe of like-minded female journalists, Allende for the first time felt comfortable in her own skin, as they wrote “with a knife between our teeth” about women’s issues. She has seen what the movement has accomplished in the course of her lifetime. And over the course of three passionate marriages, she has learned how to grow as a woman while having a partner, when to step away, and the rewards of embracing one’s sexuality.

So what feeds the soul of feminists - and all women - today? To be safe, to be valued, to live in peace, to have their own resources, to be connected, to have control over our bodies and lives, and above all, to be loved. On all these fronts, there is much work yet to be done, and this book, Allende hopes, will “light the torches of our daughters and granddaughters with mine. They will have to live for us, as we lived for our mothers, and carry on with the work still left to be finished.

Disappointing

As an independent woman and attorney who has used a wheelchair for mobility since age 35, I am finding Allende’s reflections on aging and dependency annoying and shallow. She is unaware of her ableism which is ironic given her feminism. I’m going to return this audible book and pretend that I never heard it so t can still enjoy her fiction. I think her feminist reflections will only be interesting to those who are completely unenlightened.

A 70 year woman reader is disappointed

I have led the life of feminism and this book is a retread. Knew and done the book’s message. I have enjoyed Allende in her previous novels, The Soul of a Woman couldn’t end soon enough.

Part Memoir & part reflections on life & womanhood

Isabel Allende has written a book which is part memoir on how she became a feminist at 6, and part reflections on life, being a woman, a mother, daughter and grandmother, wife, ex-wife, feminism, aging, covid19, among other intimate and personal reflections. A joy to read.

must read. Empowering, raw, funny, hard. fantastic

I felt as though I was listening to the author in a soliloquy that shows who she is, as she took us on a journey from the Isabel from the the "House of the Spirits" time all the way to who she is now

Everyone should read this book. Especially women who have grown complacent but also young men who are still forming their view of the world
