If you thought feminism was dead or drawing its pension, think again. Savvy, witty and politically passionate, Reclaiming the F Word explains what today s feminists want, and describes what they are doing to make it happen. Whether or not you actually call yourself a feminist, if you care about gender equality and justice you will want to read this book. --Deborah Cameron, author of The Myth of Mars and Venus
There has never been a better, more exciting time to be a feminist. This book shows the positive impact of feminism on our daily lives. Reclaiming The F Word should be every woman's - and many men's - bedside companion. --Zoe Margolis, aka Abby Lee, author of Girl With A One Track Mind
A lucid and lively examination of the state of contemporary feminism from two women who really know what they're talking about. Most importantly, at a time when it's easy to feel down-hearted about the state we're in, this book is full of hope. --Libby Brooks, deputy comment editor, Guardian
