Advance Praise for New Blood
"Chris Bobel is a careful ethnographer, respectful of research participants, and while she clearly takes a stand on menstrual activism, she handily defends her proposition that feminism is 'finding its balance between reliving its past and creating its future.' Bobel's work, which includes incisive analysis of how third-wave activists incorporate and update tactics and strategies of the second wave, will be a welcome addition to the scholarship of feminism."
Elizabeth Kissling, Capitalizing on the Curse: The Business of Menstruation

"Chris Bobel's account of Third-Wave menstrual activism is a generational eye-opener."
—Judith Lorber, Breaking the Bowls: Degendering and Feminist Change

"Chris Bobel is a wonderful writer and her outstanding. She leads you through the book weaving the narrative into a fascinating
read. New Blood is not only a book about menstruation, it is about the meaning of menstruation and all things 'feminine.'

I, like many feminist activists and researchers from the second wave, generally have found the claims of 'Third Wave Feminism' tiresome and inaccurate.

But at the same time, we need to learn more about them. When that is done, as in Bobel's manuscript, there is an emerging thoughtful and respectful understanding of what some young feminist activists are about today. That does not mean I or anyone else is going to agree with everything they say or do, but it does give perspective and a level of admiration. We all hope the women's movement continues, not just in terms of longevity, but also in ever changing modes that appeal to each succeeding generation. That is why it is essential to study, understand, and support Third Wave Feminism. This is a book that does that."
—Barbara Ryan, Feminism and the Women's Movement: Dynamics of Change in Social Movement Ideology and Action
