The Battle for Tomorrow: A Fable, by Dr. Stuart Bramhall, is a self-published book about sixteen-year-old Ange, a politically conscious girl who struggles to seek independence and identity. Ange encounters both hindrances and help in her journey toward adulthood. An ageist, misogynistic culture hinders her goal of emancipation; unexpected help comes in the form of older women who empathize with and encourage their young friend to explore her own ethics.
Ange encounters many life-changing events in her search for selfhood: date rape, abortion, dysfunctional family relationships, moving to a different city, making new friends and exploring many ideologies through different activist groups. Determined to join the activist movement, Ange also encounters various facets of the judicial system.
Dr. Bramhall spoke with Feminists for Choice about her book.
