Summary

Feminism isn't dead. It just isn't very cool anymore. Enter Full Frontal Feminism, a book that embodies the forward-looking messages that author Jessica Valenti propagated as founder of the popular website, Feministing.com.

This revised edition includes a new foreword by Valenti, reflecting upon what’s happened in the five years since Full Frontal Feminism was originally published. With new openers from Valenti in every chapter, the book covers a range of topics, including pop culture, health, reproductive rights, violence, education, relationships, and more.

Aged but timeless

While I would easily stand behind giving this work 5 stars if this was the mid 2000s still a lot of the facts and information, especially in regards to her arguments on laws, are no longer true. I still feel however that it's a very eloquent and welcoming introduction to feminism as a moral and life philosophy as well as a political ideology for any American.

I'd recommend it!

It had a good message for all young women, narrator brought the value of that message down, she did a poor job. However I'd still highly recommend the book.
