Roxane Gay

Bad Feminist

Read
New York Times Bestseller
A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay.
“Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink—all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I’m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.”
In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.
Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.

Es un libro necesario para pensar en las diversas formas de ser feminista; además de considerar que el feminismo desde el privilegio es un movimiento social limitado, que debe ampliar sus fronteras. Excelente libro.

It's such a great book, insight of a woman facing discrimination for the most trivial things in life due to gender and race.

Mi primer libro completo sobre feminismo. Me encantó por la sinceridad de la autora, porque me reflejé en muchas de las situaciones que describe pasan las mujeres y porque también me abrió nuevas perspectivas sobre la vida de las mujeres y el feminismo.

Feminism is a choice, and if a woman does not want to be a feminist, that is her right, but it is still my responsibility to fight for her rights

Luck and loneliness, it would seem, are very compatible.

Movies, more often than not, tell the stories of men as if men’s stories are the only stories that matter
