I'm a feminist but... I absolutely hate this.

everything about me wanted to love this I'm a feminist I want to encourage people to be feminist I want to hear people's perceptions and views on being feminists but this audiobook and the book just leave me cringing. some of sections like the A - Z are just absolutely awful. this just seemed to be an eclectic mix of people's ramblings there's nothing in power and within this book. it's such a shame as I really wanted to like it I bought the book along with the audible in hopes that I would love it but sadly I just don't.

An Ok first feminist book

Good for teens but not a very deep developed feminist book. A good introduction that covers a lot of topics.

Brilliant and Thought Provoking

I loved this book and thought it was excellent as an audiobook. It is a collection of essays from different women discussing what feminism means to them. I've never considered myself a feminist, thinking that men often suffered at the expense of women gaining power. However, I now realise this was misguided and everyone should be equal from the beginning and if women didn't have to fight for it then it wouldn't appear that men are suffering. These women don't just talk about women's rights but equality for ALL.

Very good, some stories are funny, some are moving

Very good, some stories are funny, some are moving, some we have heard already before. it would have been better if the stories were read our by the ladies who wrote them. the narrator seem like she was a teenager ..

An inspirational must-listen!

The amount of inspirational women that contributed to this book are a good enough reason to listen to it alone, but aside from that, it's an amazingly important book. I loved it so much.
