Description

What does the F word mean to you? The must-read book for 2018. Follow @feminists on Instagram for updates.

A collection of writing from extraordinary women, from Hollywood actresses to teenage activists, each telling the story of their personal relationship with feminism, this book explores what it means to be a woman from every point of view.

Often funny, sometimes surprising, and always inspiring, this book aims to bridge the gap between the feminist hashtag and the scholarly text by giving women the space to explain how they actually feel about feminism.

Review quote

This collection of essays curated by writer Scarlett Curtis is a call-to-arm that allows us to unpick what it means to be a feminist in a safe space. To understand the complexities that unite women from all different walks of life, colours and creeds and how to rise up against a patriaxrchy that wants to dictate what a feminist means. It's not trying to be the definitive book on feminism but it will keep the conversation going L-O-U-D-L-Y. * Stylist.co.uk * From Scarlett's captivating and grounding introduction to angry tales of personal experiences ... this book has a bit of everything. Pick it up and read one story from your favourite columnist or actress, but I guarantee you'll end up reading the full, illuminating collection, and you'll possibly finish it knowing more about your own personal stance than you imagined. * Glamour.co.uk * We advise placing a copy in the hands of every girl (and guy) you know * Red Magazine * As a feminist who loves pink, I give this brilliant book of essays an enthusiastic "YES" * Mindy Kaling * Brilliant, hysterical, truthful and real. These essays illuminate the path for our future female leaders. * Reese Witherspoon *
