Feminist collections are truly not letting me down this month. With The Little Book of Feminist Saints by Julia Pierpont and now this empowering book, I’m pretty much settled for the year. Speaking of which, I began 2017 with Nasty Women by 404 Ink, and with the end in sight, I finished it with a...

Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest The last presidential election made me very upset. Like many Americans, I asked myself, "How did this man get elected?" But also, "Why were so many people willing to overlook all the terrible things he said? Why did 53% of women vote for him...

This collection represents the views of many women in America today. The underlying theme here is one very hard to understand fact: 53% of white women voted for Donald Trump. Women as group (including white women who did not vote for Trump), are having a really hard time absorbing this. It begs t...

I'm going to start by saying that I actually read this. I can't believe I have to put that, but based on most of the star ratings, with no written reviews, on a book that isn't out until next week, it is clear that many have not. Ironic considering the point of the essays in this book. (And yes,...

If you read one essay from this book, read Mary Kathryn Nagle’s “Nasty Native Women” - that is a history lesson and a sermon in one. And once you’ve read that, read the rest of the book. The contributors are diverse, the subjects and responses are diverse, and the ideas for what to do next are my...

Nasty Women is a collection of 23 essays responding to the Great Betrayal that was the 2016 election. Edited by Samhita Mukhopadhyay and Kate Harding, this collection unites the voices of women with all kinds of identities in contemplation of the world we woke up to on November 9th. For some reaso...

I feel like I've been waiting for this book since the election. It is so, so cathartic to witness the rage and grief of other women over our current administration. Especially appreciated the attention paid to soliciting contributions beyond the usual roster of white, cishet, able-bodied women --...

I picked up this anthology at the library and went into it with very specific expectations. First, I expected a spectrum of feminist thought I could glean from. Second, as a minority woman who was also deeply affected by November 6th, I was hoping this book would provide me with a sense of solida...

everyone I know is getting a copy of this. This makes sense of everything I've been feeling and taught me more about the state of our intersectional Feminist moment than I could have imagined. required reading.

A great read for anyone disillusioned by the current state of American politics, specifically by who occupies the White House. The essays bring all points of the feminist movement into view, not just the needs of the white/cisgendered population, which is important as the future of our country de...
