Tentu, diberikan oleh Emma Watson, aktivis kesetaraan gender sekaligus sosok dibalik klub Our Shared Shelf. Brilliant, hysterical, truthful, and real, these essays illuminate the path for our future female leaders. The ‘radical notion that women are people’ requires that one upholds the humanity of women at every opportunity. Because so many women of different backgrounds and with different identities contributed to this anthology, it's a great introductory read that never lectures the reader or imposes a one-sided idea on them of what feminism should be.

Published in partnership with Girl Up, the UN Foundation's adolescent girl campaign, contributors include Hollywood superstars like Saoirse Ronan, activists like Alicia Garza, a founder of Black Lives Matter, and even fictional icons such as Bridget Jones. The end message of the book is to take action and push feminism and yet after reading, I’m still not sure how. I have respect Girl Up's work, and I appreciate the diversity of the contributors and the emphasis on everyone being a work in progress.In February 2017 she began writing a weekly column for The Sunday Times Style titled The Generation Z Hit List. Often funny, sometimes surprising, and always inspiring, this book aims to bridge the gap between the feminist hashtag and the scholarly text by giving women the space to explain how they actually feel about feminism. All the women and Scarlett are inspiring and give such insight into feminism and society in ways I had not thought of before. 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. As you are reading this, you are either a full-on feminist or thinking about it" ( Be a fun feminist - Nimco Ali p.

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. Some of the essays didn't even really seem to be directly about feminism at all, but rather on only tangentially related issues--for example, the reason why the cover of this book is a specific shade of pink. You can’t escape this book without the message of building other women up and supporting them instead of tearing them down as competition, which I 100% get behind (I mean, we’ve been pitted against each other forever. This book was truly motivational, and I feel like it has opened my eyes perhaps a little wider, to what feminism means to some rather amazing women. Olivia Perez made a list of "10 Ways to Support the Women in Your Life" that was heartfelt and sincere with a dash of humor ( "9.Because periods don’t affect men and we live in a deeply patriarchal world, they are shrouded in shame and apology.

Reading the words of such powerful feminist activists, ones who push for change everyday through their writing and their art, is as inspiring as it is important. but i do have to say that this book didn’t do enough for me personally since all it did was share a short little moment of the person. I have to say that it did feel a bit repetitive at times, because the writings were organized in different collections, such as 'epiphany', 'anger', 'poetry break' and such (also I'm not a *huge* fan of poetry, but that's another matter altogether). This book was divided into sections to focus on certain elements of the journey of feminism: epiphany; anger; joy; poetry; action; education; and further reading.An obsolete read for anyone that knows a little about feminism, I would be pretty interested to have the review of someone belonging to the public targeted.

If we're going to be good feminists, then I think we have a responsibility to nurture not only ourselves, but the future men who are going to stand alongside future women.
