Why I am Not a Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto
Jessa Crispin, cultural critic and founder of Bookslut, offers a brilliant rejection of contemporary feminism-and demands something better. Somewhere along the way, Jessa Crispin argues, the feminist movement 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, she 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.
