Meg Wolitzer started writing her new novel years before the #MeToo movement, but you wouldn't know that from the story.
The Female Persuasion centers on two female characters. The first, Greer Kadetsky, is an 18-year-old college freshman. At the beginning of the novel, Greer is assaulted by a guy at a frat party, though she doesn't initially think of it as assault.
The second character, Faith Frank, is a famous feminist in her 60s who has come to give a talk on Greer's campus.
