A lively and accessible book for teens on the history, pioneers, theories, questions, arguments, and daily reality of feminism today.
What is feminism?
Combining insightful text with graphic illustrations, this engaging book introduces young adult readers to a subject that should matter to everyone. Posed as a series of questions, Feminism is... tackles the most intriguing and relevant topics, such as "Are all people equal?", "Do boys and girls learn the same things?" and "Why do women earn less than men?" Find out what equality for women really means, get a short history of feminism, and take a look at the issues that affect women at work, in the home, and around sex and identity. Meet, too, some great women, such as Gloria Steinem, Frida Kahlo, and Malala Yousafzi, "rebel girls" who refused to accept the status quo of their day and blazed a trail for others to follow. With more than 50 questions that address key feminist concerns, Feminism is... takes on the issues, is informative, and always thought-provoking.
