About this deal

i as i already mentioned, do believe that for the younger readers this book is perfect and just shows an overview of what feminism can mean and that it can be different for everyone and that what connects it all is the simple wish and hope that everyone will one day actual be seen as a person instead of a gender. 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. I loved being able to see feminism through a variety of perspectives from a wide range of women - I’m currently trying to educate myself more on modern issues including feminism, racial bias etc and this was the perfect first step ! 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. Show it to your daughters, yes, but also to your husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and everyone who should know how it is to be a woman in this day and age.

Not only are books much harder to engage with in terms of starting a dialogue (as opposed to online), but they also occupy a place of authority in society. 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. So this is for people who already identify as feminists" ( A playlists for Feminists in any situation - Akilah Hughes, p. This empowering collection shows how a diverse group of women found their voice, and it will inspire others to do the same.

Grouping discussions like this so closely together just made it sound repetitive, with similar thoughts and topics being covered within 20 pages over and over again. It's a down-to-earth, funny, inclusive and non-judgmental exploration of what feminism means to many different people. While there are things we can do in our individual lives to change things, it's important we recognise the bigger picture. Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies is a collection of writing from extraordinary women, from Hollywood actresses to teenage activists, each telling the story of her personal relationship with feminism.

How do we raise a new generation and secure a prejudice free future, eradicating abuse, inequality and toxic masculinity? My main issue with this book is the feminism espoused by many of the entries is extremely individualistic: how they have been impacted by sexism and how they've been liberated by feminism. It would probably be a good introduction to feminism if you’re wanting to read more into it or discover people hoping to take on a more activist approach. Apalagi mengingat terminologi "feminis" di Indonesia seringkali diasosiasikan dengn "social justice warrior" atau SJW.

Now don't get me wrong, it's in no way my intention to belittle these women or invalidate the experiences they share. 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? I really hope that the message in this book will influence this new wave of feminism and I highly recommend this book for all girls, everywhere! Es bringt dich zum Lachen, zum nachdenken und manchmal wunderst du dich nur, dass Andere sich schon die selben Gedanken dazu gemacht haben.

Like I said, I think it's a great introduction to feminism, but as I already knew quite a bit about that topic, I wanted to learn more new things and I didn't. They had an extreme and quite scary tolerance for pain, and were distracting and beguiling for men ( Tell Him - Jameela Jamil, p. The writings were categorised into groups such as “epiphany” (discovering feminism), and I almost wish they weren’t.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. Maybe it's about being a woman in her truth, fighting for her cause, her dreams, her vision and doing it exactly as she sees fit. It was good to see how inclusive it was, but I would still very much recommend reading it with a critical eye (not that you shouldn't always do that).
