About this deal

Some of them you might know before you start reading - like Kiera Knightly, Emma Watson and Kat Dennings - others you will want to know after reading their story!

In many countries oppression is still openly practiced and women across the globe are still refused the most basic of rights.Lady Bird і Little Women), Еванни Лінч (дивовижна Луна Лавґуд), Кет Деннінґс (читала і сміялася крізь сльози; прекрасне есе про життєві ситуації, які можуть для жінки закінчитися викраденням.

However, from the way periods are described in some of these essays, I started to doubt whether I'd actually ever had a period or if I was just being stabbed by a ghost every month. Maybe it needed curating some more, or even just spread out in a slightly different way…but it quickly became a tad monotonous, which breaks my heart to say. Of course, this is not necessarily an issue; the issue is that they vary so much in quality and relevance that they don’t hang together particularly well as a collection. The proof is only around 60 pages so I finished it within an hour BUT in those 60 pages there is so much information on feminism and personal experiences that’s it’s easy to mistake it for a much larger book.

Some people might really enjoy it, especially since so many of its components are rather "bite-sized," so to speak. CWs: misogyny/sexism, mentions of rape, mentions of transphobia, description of genital mutilation, racism. While there are things we can do in our individual lives to change things, it's important we recognise the bigger picture. Es una introducción amable y digerible al feminismo, con voces cercanas y con mucha experiencia, no solo en el tema sino en la lucha diaria de ser mujer en un mundo de hombres. Seven hours after your fight with life and death, seven hours after your body breaks open, and bloody, screaming life comes out.

Let’s hear from the teachers and students, how do we address complex issues of feminism and culture? Tidak lupa, masih ada rekomendasi bacaan yang bisa dieksplor lebih jauh oleh pembaca yang tertarik mengenal "feminisme".

But I do know one thing for sure: just because you identify as a feminist, does not mean your ideas are worth publishing.

All in all, I think this is worth the read if you're unsure about what feminism means to you or if you just want to get more of a grasp on the basics.I loved the Education section as it provided a comprehensible account of the waves of feminism and groups that had formed and taken action throughout the years. When I came across a couple such essays in a row, I started to get bored and almost gave up on the book. But it actually feels more like a book for teenagers, for very young women wanting to know more about that new word they just learned : feminism and not a book for a 30+ woman that has been a feminist since she was 10. I would recommend this to a number of people as it is very current in describing the different elements of feminism and incorporates so many topics relevant to the movement- FGM, periods, motherhood, weight, and many more!
