Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Mattersby Jessica Valenti
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
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 propagates on her popular website, Feministing.com.
Covering a range of topics, including pop culture, health, reproductive rights, violence, education, and relationships, Valenti provides young women a primer on why feminism matters.
Valenti knows better than anyone that young women need a smart-ass book that deals with real-life issues in a style they can relate to. No rehashing the same old issues. No belaboring where today's young women have gone wrong. Feminism should be something young women feel comfortable with, something they can own. Full Frontal Feminism is sending out a message to readers: Yeah, you're feminists, and that's actually pretty frigging cool.
"A feminist blogger, Valenti addresses many issues of consequence to young women: sex, birth control, abortion, sexual harassment, employment discrimination, beauty, and consumption. Her patois, however, will not appeal to every reader." Library Journal
"A model for future feminist media." Christine Cupaiuolo
"I love Feministing.com and always learn from it." Katha Pollit
"The daily must-read for feminist news with attitude." Bill Scher
"Many people need a morning 'fix.' For some, it's coffee, For others, it's SportsCenter. For me, it's Feministing.com." Katie Stone
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.
