Vermont author Melanie Finn's most recent novel is The Hare, an affecting portrait of Rosie Monroe, of her resilience and personal transformation under the pin of the male gaze, described by The New York Times as "brooding feminist thriller." The Hare bravely considers a woman’s inherent sense of obligation – sexual and emotional – to the male hierarchy, and deserves to be part of our conversation as we reckon with #MeToo and the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

Gina Frangello's new book Blow Your House Down: A Story of Family, Feminism, and Treason is a powerful testimony about the ways our culture seeks to cage women in traditional narratives of self-sacrifice and erasure. Frangello uses her personal story to examine the place of women in contemporary society: the violence they experience, the rage they suppress, the ways their bodies often reveal what they cannot say aloud, and finally, what it means to transgress “being good” in order to reclaim your own life.

Presented in partnership with the Feminist Resource Center at Chellis House, Middlebury College.
