I wish I had enjoyed it a bit more, but it was quite interesting to read about so many different women's thoughts on feminism.

It seems to frame the idea that "periods are solely a female issue" as equal to "periods are a human issue" - which it isn't (both in feminism and in general).but i do have to say that this book didn’t do enough for me personally since all it did was share a short little moment of the person. There was an attempt for some structure by the various phases in one's feminist journey: epiphany, anger, joy, action, education and a completely random and unnecessary "poetry break". But it's very much Feminism 101, and even though I fully believe being an inclusive feminist is an ongoing process, this book was a little too basic for me at times.

I’m so thankful for the relative diversity of experience – it’s a decent specimen of intersectional feminism.

I was eager to learn anything new, to hear about things that are generally pushed aside by the media and society as a whole.An urgent and empowering collection of writing from 52 different women from all walks of life including Hollywood, activism and the arts. Let’s hear from the teachers and students, how do we address complex issues of feminism and culture? I want it to be illegal to discriminate, and legislation to be put in place that makes it pointless to discriminate.

Published in partnership with Girl Up, the UN Foundation's adolescent girl campaign, contributors include Hollywood superstars like Saoirse Ronan, activists like Alicia Garza, a founder of Black Lives Matter, and even fictional icons such as Bridget Jones. Because so many women of different backgrounds and with different identities contributed to this anthology, it's a great introductory read that never lectures the reader or imposes a one-sided idea on them of what feminism should be.

Put simply, if men had periods, bleeding would be an Olympic sport and there would be free menstrual cups given out on the tube. Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies is a collection of writing from extraordinary women, from Hollywood actresses to teenage activists, each telling the story of her personal relationship with feminism. CWs: misogyny/sexism, mentions of rape, mentions of transphobia, description of genital mutilation, racism. The introduction states that "This book is hopefully here to show you that being a feminist isn't quite what you thought it was" ( p. As a reader I think the book could have benefitted from more discussion on the education of future generations.
