Rating this book is pretty tough because I realized pretty fast that I had made a mistake : I was not the public targeted for that collection of essays on feminism. Además de ayudar en la repetición, resulta mucho más enriquecedor investigar más de las mujeres que te van interesando sin abrumarte con la cantidad de autoras.

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. I hope feminism can do this for me and you and the young women growing up in this climate, and for men - especially for men - who are not adept at embodying their feelings and their truth, and who need women to lead by example and give permission. I was eager to learn anything new, to hear about things that are generally pushed aside by the media and society as a whole. Yet earlier, it also stated that "Most of the amazing women who have contributed to this book probably don't know much more about feminism than you do" ( p.This was a great book as it brought together essays from a number of women from diverse backgrounds, with an acknowledgment of experiences of intersectional feminism; black feminism/identity, ableism, trans-women. And maybe that’s more to do with my own thoughts than anything the book said, but it did really push the idea of not criticising women. After reading this I am filled with an urgent desire to actually go out and do something about these wrongs! Pick it up and read one story from your favourite columnist or actress, but I guarantee you'll end up reading the full, illuminating collection, and you'll possibly finish it knowing more about your own personal stance than you imagined.

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!It seems to frame the idea that "periods are solely a female issue" as equal to "periods are a human issue" - which it isn't (both in feminism and in general). But I do know one thing for sure: just because you identify as a feminist, does not mean your ideas are worth publishing. Many of the guests are some of my favourite women - smart, articulate, empathetic - but the host talks over them, asks basic questions, elbows in her own immature, unrefined viewpoint. As a reader I think the book could have benefitted from more discussion on the education of future generations. As you are reading this, you are either a full-on feminist or thinking about it" ( Be a fun feminist - Nimco Ali p.
