Description
"In The Guilty Feminist, Deborah Fraser-White defines a new brand of feminists alongside the mainstream and the radical: the guilty. Those who subscribe to the core of feminism but...fill in the blank. But you got distracted trying face creams at a department store in the middle of a Women's March, or you've imagined a future of winning the lottery more often than a future without the patriarchy -- all of the caveats that leave many women feeling a little bit guilty. An instant bestseller in the UK, the book incorporates this idea of constant guilt into a modern primer on the state of feminism and the future of the movement. Frances-White starts with the basics of feminism: a bit of history and the main tenets. From there, she delves into big issues of identity, equality, and how we can really make change in today's climate. She also includes interviews with really fabulous thought-leaders like yoga teacher and body positive advocate Jessamyn Stanley. An approachable, voice-driven state of the feminist affairs, The Guilty Feminist will be a rallying cry for those who feel intimidated by the need to be perfect feminists (since there's in fact no such thing)"--
