I only wish I could rate it higher,
This review is from: Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters (Paperback)
I have read stacks of books on feminism. And no other book has inspired me more (maybe tieing with Manifesta and Grassroots, read those too). This book is good for younger feminists who need to cut through the rhetoric to the simple truths of why the women's movement is still important. Maybe you shouldn't give this to your preteen daughter, as the author does use some crude language to get her point across, but it doesn't take away from the quality of the book to older readers. Full Frontal Feminism makes you think, and contrary to what other reviewers say, it doesn't bash men and even applauds the efforts of some men and their organizations. But then, the assumption that women are people too may bother some people. I highly recommend this book to everyone who has ever said "I'm not a feminist but..." It's awesome and gives some great ideas as to how to bring feminism into your daily life. Read this book.
