About this deal

this is a wonderful collection for a huge diversity of authors and voices and defiantly a great read for teens that need to understand why feminism is important and what it can mean and what it isn’t (the hate for any and all things male as do many many people believe feminism stands for). Let’s hear from the teachers and students, how do we address complex issues of feminism and culture?

I don't know if I would actually recommand it for young girls that would want to discover feminism, because I'm not sure whether the book actually gives answer at some point. Seven hours after your fight with life and death, seven hours after your body breaks open, and bloody, screaming life comes out. However, with the exception of the above, and a couple other highlights, this book was largely a let-down. Now don't get me wrong, it's in no way my intention to belittle these women or invalidate the experiences they share.The content is modern and inclusive too, feminism is not exclusive to gender issues anymore; it its directly connected to issues of race, ethnicity, faith, sexuality and class. In many countries oppression is still openly practiced and women across the globe are still refused the most basic of rights. What it should all boil down to is the most fundamental fact of life, we are all thinking, feeling, breathing humans, none with greater or more deserved power than any other. The writings were categorised into groups such as “epiphany” (discovering feminism), and I almost wish they weren’t. But, because periods don't affect men and we live in a deeply patriarchal world, they are shrouded in shame and apology.

Alaa Murabit's "Imposter Syndrome" was a startling look at how often even the most brilliant women are looked down upon and caused to doubt their own abilities.She has had work published in The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Times, Vogue and a number of other online and offline magazines and newspapers.

In addition, this book also provided statistics (the advantages of equality in women's education and work) and studies (on the colour pink! I've seen a lot of reviews from feminists saying that they realised after they started reading it that they realised they weren't the target audience for this book - but who is the target audience for this book? This book comprises a plethora of actors, activists, journalists and others of "celebrity" status on what Feminism means to them. I was eager to learn anything new, to hear about things that are generally pushed aside by the media and society as a whole.As you are reading this, you are either a full-on feminist or thinking about it" ( Be a fun feminist - Nimco Ali p. As well as discussing this pervasive media stereotype of female competition, Keira shares her experiences of shame, sexual objectification and motherhood. CWs: misogyny/sexism, mentions of rape, mentions of transphobia, description of genital mutilation, racism.
