very inspiring, interesting read

A book that gives you lots to think about. It's so great to hear all the different view of feminists and what the movement means to them or just what it means to be a woman.

Brilliant and Thought Provoking

I loved this book and thought it was excellent as an audiobook. It is a collection of essays from different women discussing what feminism means to them. I've never considered myself a feminist, thinking that men often suffered at the expense of women gaining power. However, I now realise this was misguided and everyone should be equal from the beginning and if women didn't have to fight for it then it wouldn't appear that men are suffering. These women don't just talk about women's rights but equality for ALL.

Everyone should read this book.

We should ALL be feminists. This book was my first deep dive into the world of human rights, and I can't wait to keep learning. Stay empowered.

Feminist as FUCK.

This book is life changing - I wasn’t entirely sure why and what made me explore my feminist, but this has opened my eyes about why it is still so important
