Ng collection that everyone should buy and read I listened
to the audiobook but I m definitely going to buy a physical copy because I find this one of these the audiobook but I m definitely going to buy a physical copy because I find this one of these books that I ave to add to my bookshelf because it is just such a gem The lies we Women's Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle have been told about feminismave been fed to us to Telecommunications Network Design Algorithms hold us back from a movement that is actually for everyone I absolutely loved most of the essays in this I felt inspired and lovedow intersectional most of the essays were There were some that were not inclusive of trans and non cisgender people
was disappointing Overall really loved and learnt from a lot of the essays and would definitely recommend ittw rape transphobia Rating this book is pretty tough because I realized pretty fast that I The Power of the Internet in China had made a mistake I was not the public targeted for that collection of essays on feminism The fact that adult women older than me were saying it was a brilliant book that everyone should read made me buy it But it actually feels like a book for teenagers for very young women wanting to know about that new word they just learned feminism and not a book for a 30 woman thatas been a feminist since she was 10 So it s pretty Fundamentals of Federal Income Taxation, 19th (University Casebook Series) hard for me to write an objective review I found the book pretty underwhelming and boring at times Some essays actually weren t about feminism at all some were about a very weird conception of feminism I don t know if I would actually recommand it for young girls that would want to discover feminism because I m not sure whether the book actually gives answer at some point Most adult women that wrote in it don t seem to know what feminism is either There were some good essays in it But they were not the majority and none of them were great An obsolete read for anyone that knows a little about feminism I would be pretty interested toave the review of someone belonging to the public targeted This book needed alf the essays but at twice the length each In its current form it ends up as a collection of punchy but ultimately dissatisfying soundbites Who says feminists can t wear pink What a wonderful way to kick off the new year with a great book like thisThis book is a collection of personal essays written by a multitude of brave clever strong passionate women Some of them you might know before you start reading like Kiera Knightly Emma Watson and Kat Dennings others you w Another difficult one to rate Feminists Don t Wear Pink carries such a valuable sentiment it s a fairly decent crash course in feminism it s so energetic It breaks my eart slightly to say that it misses the markThese are not essays Let s clarify that from the get go These entries are akin to anecdotes Of course this is not necessarily an issue the issue is that they vary so much in uality and relevance that they don t ang together particularly well as a collection There are incidents that I actually felt perpetuated some stereotypes and others that functioned only as filler materialThere are some isolated moments of sheer brilliance Jameela Jamil s Tell Him a wonderful call to arms for women looking to tackle misogyny in their own omes and the outstanding The Weaker Sex by Keira Knightley a powerful expos of motherhoodHere are some of my favourite sections for your enjoyment Don t get me wrong this isn t some poor boys appeal It s just that in my opinion it s as if men are recruited young and brainwashed in order to be indoctrinated and manipulated into an oppressive patriarchal institution This is a call to arms for the women who The New World Spanish/English, English/Spanish Dictionary (El New World Diccionario espaol/ingls,

Riter and topic would switch every few pages and when the form switched too It sometimes took awhile for me to catch on to what I was readingNow it s not all bad as negative as it sounds so far I did enjoy many of the writings As mentioned before the diversity is something I m intensely glad for in this book and it was definitely the topics relating to race transgender experiences and lesser talked about topics like FGM that caught my attention I was eager to learn anything new to ear about things that are generally pushed aside by the media and society as a whole These topics typically took on a essay or anecdotal style which I much preferred and I can t but think that form is one of the best ways but think that this form is one of the best ways make these women believe it or not feel like actual people Imagine that Shocker I knowUnfortunately it was just very it and miss Some of the writings just went over my ead entirely leaving me sat there thinking okbut why did I just read that The end message of the book is to take action and push feminism and yet after reading I m still not sure ow Especially when a lot of the essays just repeated a lot of what s shouted about on the internet already sowhat can I do beyond that I don t know Was I meant to know after reading thisNow I will just say I m not new to reading about feminism and so that s probably contributing largely to my disappointment in this book I ve eard a lot of what s said in ere before and while it s important to keep pushing these topics until something s sorted I was Gusto ko ng Pansit Ngayon hoping for somethingence my main interest coming from the intersectionality of this book As an introduction to feminism I do think this could be a fairly informative place to start so maybe I was just the wrong audience for it shrugsBUT THEN Here s where a lot of the contradictory thoughts start getting mixed upAs Jess pointed out in Tarot of Sexual Magic (English and Spanish Edition) her reading vlog it feels like you can t criticise this book If you re a feminist you re not allowed to You can t escape this book without the message of building other women up and supporting them instead of tearing them down as competition which I 100% get behind I mean we ve been pitted against each other forever No Soto then come away and criticise the large majority of a book that over 50 women worked towardshonestly it feels like blasphemy I feel like I m not allowed to criticise this book without being a bad feminist And maybe that s to do with my own thoughts than anything the book said but it did really push the idea of not criticising women But criticism isow we grown as people and nobodynothing is perfect So where s the loopholeI don t know It s a messy bunch of thoughts circling this book I just think for the most part that this book would The Prayers of Susanna Wesley Clarion Classics have benefitted with either A curating leading to a variety of specific topics rather than just generalised writings or B less people writing longer piecesStill it wasn t awful It would probably be a good introduction to feminism if you re wanting to read into it or discover peopleoping to take on a activist approach I personally was just expecting with less confusion The proof is only around 60 pages so I finished it within an War Songs hour BUT in those 60 pages there is so much information on feminism and personal experiences that s it s easy to mistake it for a much larger book I loved being able to see feminism through a variety of perspectives from a wide range of women I m currently trying to educate myself on modern issues including feminism racial bias etc and this was the perfect first step Seriously YES to everything in this wonderful feminist collection As pointed out in the introduction Feminists Don t Wear Pink isn t an academic collection of feminist essays but a collection of essays thoughts poetry etc on all kinds of topics by all kinds of badass women It s about intersectionality it covers theistory of the waves of feminism also pointing out the less beautiful aspects of the Histologie history of feminism such as racism it talks about periods and about answering the most asked and often dumb uestions about feminism by boysmen in a very funny way I might add It s about what feminism is to many different women and what it definitely is not There are beautiful essays about motherhood on raising sons and daughters It covers sexism the patriarchy misogyny and well basically everything and so much I can t think of right now This book is specifically aimed at young adults teaching them that they can be whatever they want to be and letting them know that feminism is a lot but one thing it definitely isn t a dirty word that describes manating women who burn bras and every other stereotype you can think of Don t be put off by me saying it is aimed at young adults Feminists Don t Wear Pink in my L'Attaque des Titans T28 humble opinion is an amazi.
