About this deal

Side note: this also confuses me as Jamil seems to be suggesting that years of sexism and oppression are mainly due to men being scared of periods?

Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies is a collection of writing from extraordinary women, from Hollywood actresses to teenage activists, each telling the story of her personal relationship with feminism. I honestly think this book does such a great job at going fully in depth about feminism and it’s basis. The end message of the book is to take action and push feminism and yet after reading, I’m still not sure how. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Curtis reminds us not to forget injustices happening in countries stuck in tradition, where the patriarchy is still celebrated even now: male-only votes, underage and/or forced marriage, FGM, period poverty, education restrictions, reproductive rights, prejudice and violence against the LGBT+ community, among a shocking number of others.

Journalist and activist Scarlett Curtis interviews inspiring women about what feminism means to them, and why it matters. Maybe it's about being a woman in her truth, fighting for her cause, her dreams, her vision and doing it exactly as she sees fit.My main issue with this book is the feminism espoused by many of the entries is extremely individualistic: how they have been impacted by sexism and how they've been liberated by feminism. With a range of contributors, from Hollywood actresses to teen activists, writing about their personal experiences as women, Feminists Don't Wear Pink is Rebel Girls for a teen audience.
