Waterstones Says

A fully intersectional guide to feminism from the same series as This Book is Anti-Racist, Wilson’s wide-ranging and accessible book is aimed at everybody eager to understand the history and importance of feminism in the twenty-first century.

"I am a feminist. I've been female for a long time now. It'd be stupid not to be on my own side." - Maya Angelou

A vibrantly illustrated introduction to intersectional feminism for next-generation changemakers.

Who has power? Who creates the rules? How do identities intersect? In this next book in the Empower the Future series, explore the points where gender, race, class, ability, sexuality and culture meet. Learn from author Jamia Wilson's lived experience, read the statistics, and gain strength in quotes from feminist firebrands and activists. Along the way, respond to calls to action and form your own views on the 'F' word.

This book is for everyone. Discover the history and meaning of the feminist movement through 15 reasons why feminism improves life for everyone. By exploring who has been left out of the movement historically, this book makes sure everybody is included.

What have you been taught about who has power and who makes the rules? Have you ever been lost for words at an old-school family friend's 'kind' but sexist comments? Do you agree with equality and strive for justice, but struggle to take on the name 'Feminist'? Then read on.

In this new feminist classic, the focus is intersectional from the beginning, not just as an add-on. Using the framework of 'personal is political', Jamia Wilson - former director of the Feminist Press - analyses her own experiences, before expanding outwards and drawing on stats, quotes and luminaries to gain strength from.

Expand what feminism means to you, your community and society by examining these 15 themes: feminism, identity, justice, education, money, power, health, wellness, freedom, relationships, media, safety, activism and movements, innovation, and an interactive exploration of what feminism means to you.

You will close the book with an understanding that history and culture play a role in shaping systems of power and of what we can do with our strengths, community and values to help change course when needed. You won't have read a feminist tome like this before.

Other inspiring books authored by Jamia Wilson: Young Gifted and Black, Step Into Your Power and Big Ideas for Young Thinkers.
