Bad Feminist


This collection of essays, from the inimitable Roxane Gay, is fierce. Each tale is personal and reflective, critical of culture at large without looking for scapegoats. Gay locates feminism in television and pop stars, and bemoans the lack of it on the street and in our courts. Hers is a feminism that is big-hearted and forgiving while still demanding a great deal from its constituents. We should all be as bad at feminism as she is.
