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

Written during the height of second-wave feminism, Sontag’s essays remain 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 power and powerlessness.

As Merve Emre writes in her introduction, On Women offers 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.’
