I have never felt so uneducated.

Wow. This book shares so many different and diverse experiences and perspectives on feminism from women and members of the trans community. I feel mad and I feel happy and I am inspired.

very inspiring, interesting read

A book that gives you lots to think about. It's so great to hear all the different view of feminists and what the movement means to them or just what it means to be a woman.

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.

A lesson we could all share in hearing

I struggled to get into this book to be honest, I just wasn't sure if it was going to be relatable or perhaps just listenable?
It was only within half an hour of listening that I understood that I was being challenged. Over and over again.

Some of the essays were harder to sit with that others, some riled me, others soothed me, some made me want to cheer, others sob.

I was mostly sad that each author didn't narrate their own essays - though understandingly hard to organise!

Would recommend.

Mixed

There were some great personal essays in here, but also some very repetitive ones that didn’t really add anything. I also think the audiobook could have benefited hugely from having the original authors of the essays read their own work. The voices used instead were very samey and contributed to the repetitive feel of some of the writing.

should be on the national curriculum

This is a must read for all young women. Easy to dip in and out of due to the format and very contemporary.

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.
