Bad Feminist

I picked up this book because I, myself, identify as a bad feminist.  Sure, I want women to be offered the same opportunities as men, but I won’t be burning my bra anytime soon and think men should give up their spot on the subway for me.  But as Roxane Gay displays through this collection of essays, we humans are complicated beings.

This book is all the things you’re not supposed to talk about at a dinner party (race, religion, and politics), but it’s done in a way that makes this charged conversation approachable.  Gay touches on gender, sexuality, race, even Sweet Valley High.  I found every essay to be slightly humorous and always insightful.

5 out of 5 stars.
