Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in its updated second edition, Full Frontal Feminism is a book that continues to embody the forward-looking messages that author Jessica Valenti propagated as founder of the popular website, Feministing.com.

Full Frontal Feminism is a smart and relatable guide to the issues that matter to today's young women. This edition includes a new foreword by Valenti, reflecting upon what's happened in the seven 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.

Chapters include:

You're a Hardcore Feminist. I Swear.

Feminists Do It Better (and Other Sex Tips)

Pop Culture Gone Wild

The Blame (and Shame) Game

If These Uterine Walls Could Talk

Material World

My Big Fat Unnecessary Wedding and Other Dating Diseases

“Real” Women Have Babies

I Promise I Won't Say “Herstory”

Boys Do Cry

Beauty Cult

Sex and the City Voters, My Ass

A Quick Academic Aside

Get to It

Since its original publication, Full Frontal Feminism has reassured readers — yeah, you're feminists, and that's actually pretty cool.
