A bookish favourite: Feminists Don’t Wear Pink

Femicide. Domestic abuse. Stalking. Up-skirting. Harassment. These are a few of my least favourite things😠

The ‘F’ word is so polarising in the modern age, with some people dismissing the need for feminism in the wake of cultural developments and others very astutely aware that gender disparities are still rampant and female lives are still undervalued…

What I like about this collection is that it’s not concerned with drudging up critical and theoretical discourse (thank christ, my thesis had enough of that 😩). It’s about everyday womxn and their thoughts/feelings on the term, defined by their experiences of misogyny, sexual violence and gender disparities since youth. It’s real, brutal and often comedic in its exploration of the issues that plague real-life womxn each and every day🙏🏾👏🏾

I love the variety of perspectives in this collection, acknowledging womxn from a plethora of different socioeconomic backgrounds, ages, ethnicities and career paths. There’s essays by recognisable folk such as Evanna Lynch, Keira Knightley, Jameela Jamil & Adwoa Aboah as well as many, many more👭💞

I still flick through the pages for random wisdom and empowerment on bleak days and would definitely recommend to any/all parties! 💜
