Bad Feminist is a powerful book that examines the varied challenges of fighting for equal rights. If you fight hard, you deserve sprinkle-dipped marshmallows.
Do you support equal rights? Of course you do. You believe women deserve the same rights as men. But do you understand everything that goes into equality? It’s not as simple as gender. It’s also race, education, socioeconomic status, geography and so much more.
In this powerful book of essays, professor and author Roxane Gay examines the various ways in which the world and society hamper the feminist fight. External forces tell us “feminist” is a bad word; they tell us the right when, where and how of the struggle; they love to tell us when the ways we try just aren’t good enough.
