Publisher's Summary

This is a manifesto for the 99 percent.

Unaffordable housing, poverty wages, inadequate healthcare, border policing, climate change - these are not what you ordinarily hear feminists talking about. But aren't they the biggest issues for the vast majority of women around the globe?

Taking as its inspiration the new wave of feminist militancy that has erupted globally, this manifesto makes a simple but powerful case: feminism shouldn't start - or stop - with the drive to have women represented at the top of their professions. It must focus on those at the bottom and fight for the world they deserve. And that means targeting capitalism. Feminism must be anti-capitalist, eco-socialist, and anti-racist.

100% positive

This piece helped me tremendously in understanding and articulating what I see so flawed in today’s society, and helped me see a path forward. I could not recommend it any higher.

Important concepts within

A few trite and repetitive phrases in the narrative, and occasional incongruities between written content and narrator tone, but overall a critically important and helpful outline of the specific social problems that a holistic, sustainable, effective feminism seeks to confront and dismantle across human cultures.
