Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters
Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous introduction, 20 Mar. 2008
Valenti's book is well researched and written in an accessible, yet non condescending style. If you have read much feminist literature before, this is perhaps not the book for you, it doesn't assume any prior knowledge, and spends quite a lot of time combating media stereotypes and explaining what feminism is and both how much has been achieved and how far we have to go. The chapter on what men stand to gain from feminism is excellent, more men need to read this!

If I had a teenage daughter, I would be handing this over to her without a second thought, however, if you (like me) were brought up on a diet of Naomi Wolf and Betty Friedan, you may find yourself longing for something a little meatier. I also felt it was aimed at a slightly younger woman.
