Bad Feminist is the best thing to happen to my literary life in 2015. It is smart, insightful, and full of sentences that hit you straight in the heart.
A fun, accessible, and relatable read that was impressive in its range and thoughtfulness. Most of all, it was thought-provoking. I wrote lots of notes while reading, including questions it inspired me to ask myself and consider. I enjoyed that it offered an introduction to feminism that was cognizant of reservations that some people may have about feminism.
“Roxane Gay may call herself a bad feminist but she is a badass writer. . . . Reading Bad Feminist is like having a fascinating (one-way) conversation with an extremely smart, well-read, funny and thoughtful party guest. Here’s hoping we have another encounter soon.” (Associated Press)
"Conversations about feminism are everywhere, but what does it mean to be a feminist? What do feminists really believe in and advocate for? How can those of us who already identify as feminists work to be better, more inclusive, more understood?"
it is superficial and I will fully own up to it—to walk the red carpet in a fashion statement of my very own is my life-long, undying dream.
Roxane Gay! Also realness on autism, eating disorders, and doing sex in your golden years. BUT ALSO A Q&A WITH ROXANE GAY.
