Description

Feminists don’t wear pink (and other lies): Amazing women on what the F-word means to them is a selection of thought pieces written by 50 very different women, discussing feminism on their own terms. This book comprises a plethora of actors, activists, journalists and others of "celebrity" status on what Feminism means to them. Stigma itulah yang coba untuk dikupas dan dibahas oleh beberapa aktivis kesetaraan gender dalam buku ini. Terminologi "feminis" dekat dengan pemaknaan akan sesuatu yang "melawan" kodrat sehingga ketika seseorang melabeli dirinya dengan "feminis", maka seharusnya (ujar warganet) dia tidak menggunakan warna pink. You can identify as a feminist and act according to your feminism and still hurt the movement as a whole (see SWERFs and TERFs).

The language is accessible, the content agreeable (unless you’re a patriarchal monster) and the messages clear and informative. However, if your feminism is solely motivated by how it benefits you then it's extremely fragile, as a) it only takes someone else with a conflicting experience to devalue it, and b) it makes you much more susceptible to acting only in favour of you and people like you, rather than recognising the challenges facing people who are different - challenges where you may actually be part of the problem.I really appreciated the balance that was achieved between very informative parts and other parts that narrated more biographical and personal experiences. Many of the guests are some of my favourite women - smart, articulate, empathetic - but the host talks over them, asks basic questions, elbows in her own immature, unrefined viewpoint.

It is still the absolute last thing I would recommend to newbie feminists for the main reason that a lot of these women didn't seem to know what feminism is themselves. Al ser tantos textos hubo algunos que me encantaron y otros que no me gustaron nada, pero en si el libro me parece interesante ojalá lo hubiera leído a los 18 años. Scarlett chats to her guests about being a 'minority', single parent families and sexism in the comedy world. About once a month, I find myself stretched out on the couch, helpless as my uterus reenacts Game of Thrones' Red Wedding in painstaking detail. I guarantee you'll end up reading the full, illuminating collection, and you'll possibly finish it knowing more about your own personal stance than you imagined.The ‘radical notion that women are people’ requires that one upholds the humanity of women at every opportunity. In many countries oppression is still openly practiced and women across the globe are still refused the most basic of rights. Feminists don’t wear pink covers a wide basis: gender equality, sexual abuse and harassment, ‘slut’ and body-shaming, economic inequality, gender wage gap, workplace inequality, objectification, domestic abuse, child marriage, sexual slavery and prostitution, disability, ‘likeability’ and underrepresentation, particularly in politics, just to name a few. I wish I had enjoyed it a bit more, but it was quite interesting to read about so many different women's thoughts on feminism. Journalist and activist Scarlett Curtis interviews inspiring women about what feminism means to them, and why it matters.
