Reviews

"This book isn't just a feminist indictment of Hillary Clinton ... It's an indictment of a left that has failed to reckon with capitalism's dark side."
--Amanda Erickson, Washington Post

"This collection of essays deconstructs Hillary's problematic history as a candidate who professes to be a feminist but whose policies have been pretty straight garbage for the nation's vulnerable since the start."
--Holly Wood, Medium

"A feminist critique of a feminist candidate ... Devastating.″
--Kirkus

"Intensely engrossing for Hillary Clinton's left-wing opponents--and for left-leaning readers still on the fence ... The powerfully critical essays reject the 'ruling class feminism' of Clinton in favor of a 'left feminism rooted in an understanding of women's material conditions' ... A damning portrait of both Clinton and American politics."
--Publishers Weekly

"A refreshing read with a defiant tone [that] pulls no punches when it comes to the Clinton record, from the time she entered the corporate and political world up until her work as Obama's secretary of state...This book will give you the confidence to say: not in our name ... The authors who contributed to False Choices provide us plenty of good company in the battles ahead."
--Leia Petty, Socialist Worker

"False Choices is a good reminder of all of the ways, through a long political career, Clinton has valued power over justice ... As False Choices makes clear, this election is not a progressive advancement, it is simply more of the same."
--Jessa Crispin, The Smart Set
