Description


Are you born a woman… or do you become one? Can men ever truly be feminists? And do we still need feminism in the 21st century?

This book answers these questions and many more, exploring the struggle for equality that stretches back over the centuries.
 
Trace the history of feminism from its origins, through the suffrage campaigns of the late 19th century, to recent developments such as the Everyday Sexism Project and the #MeToo movement. Examine the ideas that underpin feminist thought through crucial figures, from Simone de Beauvoir to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and discover the wider social, cultural, and historical context of their impact. Find out who campaigned for birth control, when the term “intersectionality” was coined, and what “postfeminism” really means in this comprehensive book.
 
Using the Big Ideas series’ trademark combination of authoritative, accessible text and bold graphics, the most significant concepts and theories have never been easier to understand. Packed with inspirational quotations, eye-catching infographics, and clear flowcharts, The Feminism Book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the subject.
