This is the intersectional feminism guide we've been waiting for! Jensen has assembled a fabulous array of diverse voices, from Roxane Gay to Laverne Cox, and of diverse forms, from essays and poems to comics and illustrations. This scrapbook-style book is thorough and easily accessible to any age group, with clear-cut definitions and FAQs scattered throughout the text. The variety of perspectives will encourage readers to examine their own views on what feminism is, what it is not, and what it could be. There is truly something here for everyone, even those who don't consider themselves feminists. Read this one ASAP! -Liz
