Passion and prejudice : a family memoir

by Sallie Bingham

Hardcover, 1989




New York : Knopf, 1989.


(Applause Books). "There are many accounts of the Bingham family saga, but no other by someone who was there. For the first time, a gifted writer born into a family of inherited wealth and power takes us with her behind the doors of that patriarchal hothouse. Passion and Prejudice is a major step toward feminist change and democracy. By her courage and example, Sallie Bingham already has inspired women in powerful families to begin to revolt. What is wrongly seen now as a private war will be come the opening skirmish in a high-level revolution." Gloria Steinem

Very interesting memoir about Sallie Bingham of the Louisville Binghams. Intertwined with the Flagler and Kenan families. Her perspective is interesting and sometimes surprising as a privileged woman coming of age in the 1960s and 1970s.
