Description

A vibrantly illustrated introduction to intersectional feminism for next-generation changemakers, this book is a must-read guide for young people seeking to understand the world around them. 

"Wilson’s optimistic view of feminism is based on the tenet of liberation for all, placing marginalized communities front and center... [A] foundational work." - NEW YORK TIMES

What have you been taught about who has power and who makes the rules? Have you ever been lost for words at an old-school family friend’s ‘kind’ but sexist comments? Do you agree with equality and strive for justice, but want to learn more? Then read on.

In this new feminist classic, the focus is intersectional from the beginning, not just as an add-on. Using the framework of ‘personal is political’, Jamia Wilson – former director of the Feminist Press – analyses her own experiences, before expanding outwards and drawing on stats as well as quotes from feminist firebrands and activists to inspire and encourage.
