really liked it
bookshelves: youngadult
Recommended for: people who aren't sure about feminism.

This is an important book because it reminds us that feminism means nothing more than "women are people too and should be treated as such." She then deconstructs the slurs against "feminists" which I thought was really interesting.

This book is not written in an academic tone. But, it's not supposed to. It's not a book that is supposed to gather dust on shelves but to be passed around friends.

I'm going to bring it into my classroom for my students to read. I'm hoping students are attracted by the nekked woman on the front cover and stick around to question the world around them (including the text itself).
