Summary
A lively and accessible book for teens on the history, pioneers, theories, questions, arguments, and daily reality of feminism today. What is feminism? Combining insightful text with graphic illustrations, this engaging book introduces young adult readers to a subject that should matter to everyone. Feminism Is... tackles the most intriguing and relevant topics, such as intersectionality, the right to an equal education, and the gender pay gap. Find out what equality for women really means, get a short history of feminism, and take a look at the issues that affect women at work, in the home, and around sex and identity. Meet, too, some great women, such as Gloria Steinem, Frida Kahlo, and Malala Yousafzai, "rebel girls" who refused to accept the status quo of their day and blazed a trail for others to follow. Addressing ongoing feminist concerns and including an original foreword by Roxane Gay, Feminism Is... takes on the issues in informative, thought-provoking ways. --
