One of the most beloved authors in global literature, Chilean novelist Isabel Allende has been a feminist her whole life. As a young woman coming of age in the late 1960s, Isabel rode the first wave of feminism, challenging the patriarchal mores imposed on women regarding sex, money, discriminatory laws, drugs, abortion, and prostitution. 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.
