Synopses & Reviews
Let's get the feminist party started!
Here We Are is a scrapbook-style teen guide to understanding what it means to be a twenty-first-century feminist. It's packed with contributions from a diverse range of voices, including TV, film, and pop-culture celebrities and public figures such as ballet dancer Michaela DePrince and her sister Mia and politician Wendy Davis, as well as popular authors like Nova Ren Suma, Malinda Lo, Brandy Colbert, Courtney Summers, and many more. All together, the book features more than forty-four pieces and illustrations.
Here We Are is a response to lively discussions about the true meaning of feminism on social media and across popular culture and is an invitation to one of the most important, life-changing, and exciting parties around.
"Earnest, conversational, and dauntlessly unapologetic.... An education unto itself, the message of inclusion and strength is invaluable." Booklist (Starred Review)
"Sophisticated yet entirely accessible, the collection is valuable both for the breadth of thought and perspective it represents and for the support it directs toward readers." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"A progressive antidote to the ancient teen health textbooks that mull over the dry basics of teen identity... a stellar collection... With its thoughtful, scrapbooklike design and variety of socio-economic and cultural perspectives, the book invites young readers to engage in this roundtable discussion. An embarrassment of riches." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
