Jacqueline Rose’s compelling new book opens with three extraordinary women: revolutionary socialist Rosa Luxemburg, German–Jewish painter Charlotte Salomon; and film icon Marilyn Monroe, whose lives intersected with some of the most dramatic events of the 20th century. Taking in revolution, totalitarianism and the American Dream, the book probes quintessential injustices both then and now. Jacqueline Rose, in conversation with civil liberties champion Helena Kennedy, offers a new vision of feminism for the 21st century.
