Feminists Don’t Wear Pink Review
This book is a stark reminder that feminism is still very much needed
This is probably one of the most interesting books I’ve read in a while. I’m slowly making my way through my feminist shelf, but when my best friend recommended this one to me I was actually surprised that I didn’t own it before. I bought it immediately and sat down with it just as quickly.
This is the kind of book that you can easily pick up and put down because every story is different. However, I didn’t do that. I ploughed through this book at an alarming rate because I was super keen on what all of these women had to stay. All of their stories were so interesting in so many different ways. I laughed with them. I cried with them. And I learnt a lot of things along the way.
This book is a stark reminder that feminism is still very much needed. Especially inter-sectional feminism. It taught me a lot about it and is a great way to listen to so many different stories and life experiences.
This book doesn’t just share women’s experiences, though. It also has chapters on the history of feminism, which I’ve actually never read up on before, and this was a great way to do so.
If you’re looking for a book which will really makes up rethink your own feminism in a good way, or if you’re looking to expand your knowledge and hear different voices on the feminist movement, then this is the book for you. It’s real, and it’s raw. It’s proof that we’re human, we all doubt ourselves and often question ourselves and beliefs. But this book lets you that it’s okay to do so.
