An extremely good collection of contemporary Feminist essays, written from women's (and some men's) perspectives all over the globe. It really illuminates how feminism is still relevant today, and how it is a struggle that crossed national, cultural, economic boundaries, and benefits both men and women... One of my favorite essays was one on male feminist voices in Africa (We Exist! Voices in Male Feminism) that gave a head on look at how sexism effects how men interact with women, and their health.

All the essays are written in easily accessible voices. It felt like the words of people I knew, not women in countries I'd never met.
