There are in-depth essays from prevalent activists such as Jameela Jamil, on bringing up a boy in a feminist world, and Trisha Shetty on being fuelled by anger and a desperation for equality. Seven hours after your fight with life and death, seven hours after your body breaks open, and bloody, screaming life comes out. However, I question the choice of placing their essays next to those of cis women singing about the intrinsic connection between periods and womanhood, with absolutely no context or analysis. Scarlett Curtis selaku kurator, menyajikan tulisan-tulisan yang bisa merepresentasikan keadaan di lapangan terhadap apa yang tengah diperjuangkan oleh para aktivitas kesertaraan gender tersebut.

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. About once a month, I find myself stretched out on the couch, helpless as my uterus reenacts Game of Thrones' Red Wedding in painstaking detail. Side note: this also confuses me as Jamil seems to be suggesting that years of sexism and oppression are mainly due to men being scared of periods? 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.And while there was a nice twenty-ish page essay on the history of feminism, it was the very last essay in the book. As 50 women contributed to this book, I wish some pieces had been longer, because they did feel a bit rushed at times, and I didn't get as much out of them as I did from others. However, I strongly believe that the reason behind ending (for example) period poverty, should not be "because periods are magical and make us women".

One thing I do immediately have to praise it for is its inclusivity, and I’m glad a diverse group of women with varying experiences were chosen to participate in the collection. As well as discussing this pervasive media stereotype of female competition, Keira shares her experiences of shame, sexual objectification and motherhood. You can identify as a feminist and act according to your feminism and still hurt the movement as a whole (see SWERFs and TERFs).

CWs: misogyny/sexism, mentions of rape, mentions of transphobia, description of genital mutilation, racism. But arguing "feminism needs to do more for men" and contributing little else (while overlooking the broader picture of men and feminism) does nothing for anyone. If you're going to speak from that place of authority, you should know what you're talking about and what you're contributing to the conversation ( especially if you're going to sell it for GBP 12.

It lacked structure and direction, and was padded out with listicles, short fiction, poems, a playlist for apparently no other reason than to make it thicker. In many countries oppression is still openly practiced and women across the globe are still refused the most basic of rights. 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.Especially when a lot of the essays just repeated a lot of what’s shouted about on the internet already, so…what can I do beyond that? 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. As mentioned before, the diversity is something I’m intensely glad for in this book, and it was definitely the topics relating to race, transgender experiences and lesser talked about topics (like FGM) that caught my attention.

Feminism has never been more deeply and widely embraced and discussed, but what exactly does the F word mean? By bridging the gap between feminist hashtags and scholarly texts, these essays bring feminism into clear focus. It's not trying to be the definitive book on feminism but it will keep the conversation going L-O-U-D-L-Y. This book contains thoughts, essays and poetry from some truly motivational and frankly, fucking amazing women. 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.
