Being a feminist can mean different things to different people, but one thing it always includes is the belief in equality and human rights. Whether you are talking with one close friend or hanging out with a group of classmates, it matters what you say and how you say it. Not everyone is going to agree with your opinions, especially when you are talking about social justi ...more

Can Your Conversations Change the World?
by Erinne Paisley
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I thought this book was a great starting point for defining feminism and the ways we as society see the world. It’s helpful for those just starting to dabble in the feminist history and movements of the twenty-first century. Erinne Paisley uses her own experiences as examples of how one individual can start a movement and inspire others to b

This book, "a popactivism book," is pitched toward young adults and what they can do to make a difference in the world even though they are not old enough to vote. It is mostly focused on women's rights - education for all girls, elimination of child marriage, letting women control their own bodies (genital cutting, birth control, abortion), equal pay, and female representation in politics and occupations, etc. But it also includes discussions of intersectionality and how race, class, and sexual ...more

I read & evaluated this book for the Vancouver Children's Literature Roundtable (VCLR)'s 2019 Information Book Award.

Similarly to her first book... The photos used may date quickly, and the cover design didn't do much for me. When I read it, some of the music references and pop culture references already felt dated so I just worry that teens in a few years time will lose interest easily.

This being said, the book's design and layout of information was great. There was also a glossary, list of res

This book takes a look at feminism and the continuation of working towards equal rights. As part of the POPACTIVISM series, this book focuses on the importance of discussing feminism and what it means for equality. The author shares a bit of her upbringing and the educational backgrou

I approached this book from an educator's viewpoint. My basic question to myself concerned whether or not I would want to add this to my personal social studies library for students to peruse as their will. The answer is a resounding yes. The author takes an insightful look at human rights and more specifically women's rights. She looks at a number of issues associated with feminism as well as the history of people fighting for women's rights. It is written so that the average 7-12 grade student ...more

Paisley writes for every female rather than ones called feminist. This slim volume is packed with websites, examples, quotes, and pop quizzes that explore what being female means in the media, workplace, public, marriage, and other social situations. This would be meaningful and appropriate for pre-teens and teenagers.
