I bought this because I am a regular listener to the Guilty Feminist podcast. This is a funny, inclusive, instructive book. I didn’t expect it to be such a call to action for readers to take part in activism to challenge the patriarchal, racist, ableist, socioeconomic, heteronormative structures within society, but I’m glad it was. If you consider yourself a feminist, and want to find the language or arguments for what you instinctively know, but can’t always communicate, and/or want to do more to actively make the world a more inclusive place for people with less privilege, then this is a fantastic book for you. I’m going to read this book again and then start lending it to my friends (it’s *slightly* possible I will buy extra copies for my friends, but it’s the Christmas season and I’m broke, so I probably won’t be buying any new books for a while...)
I am an avid listener of Deborah's feminist podcast and heard her voice through her writing. This book is witty, funny and tackles many feminist issues that are relevant today by breaking them down and offering others a platform to speak about them. Eg. Intersectionality, disability and modern activism/campaigns. Much love and always supporting.
