Feminism Is edited by Jen Thorpe
25 Jan 2018
“Feminism is about power, potential, passion, and rights, but it keeps changing in purpose and meaning …”
Do you call yourself a feminist? What does this mean in your daily life? In this book, South African feminists explore their often vastly different experiences and perspectives in accessible and engaging voices. Feminism Is touches on issues as wide-ranging as motherhood, anger, sex, race, inclusions and exclusions, the noisy protest and the quiet struggle. It will challenge your thinking and inspire you to action, reaffirming the urgent necessity of feminism in South Africa today.
Features contributions from Ferial Haffajee, Gugulethu Mhlungu, B Camminga, and more!
