Uncomfortable Reads: Why I Am Not A Feminist
Join Matt and Molly the last Tuesday of every month. We'll be digging into books that tackle the challenging and urgent social issues of our time. This month we're reading: Why I Am Not A Feminist by Jessa Crispin "Outspoken critic Jessa Crispin delivers a searing rejection of contemporary feminism...and a bracing manifesto for revolution. Are you a feminist? Do you believe women are human beings and that they deserve to be treated as such? That women deserve all the same rights and liberties bestowed upon men? If so, then you are a feminist...or so the feminists keep insisting. But somewhere along the way, the movement for female liberation sacrificed meaning for acceptance, and left us with a banal, polite, ineffectual pose that barely challenges the status quo. In this bracing, fiercely intelligent manifesto, Jessa Crispin demands more. Why I Am Not A Feminist is a radical, fearless call for revolution. It accuses the feminist movement of obliviousness, irrelevance, and cowardice--and demands nothing less than the total dismantling of a system of oppression."
