Defines a new brand of feminists alongside the mainstream and the radical: the guilty. Those who subscribe to the core of feminism but...fill in the blank. But you got distracted trying face creams at a department store in the middle of a Women's March, or you've imagined a future of winning the lottery more often than a future without the patriarchy -- all of the caveats that leave many women feeling a little bit guilty. Incorporates this idea of constant guilt into a modern primer on the state of feminism and the future of the movement. Frances-White starts with the basics of feminism: a bit of history and the main tenets; then delves into big issues of identity, equality, and how we can really make change in today's climate. Includes interviews with thought-leaders like yoga teacher and body positive advocate Jessamyn Stanley.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Part 1. How we got here -- Part 2. Now we're here, what do we do about it? -- Part 3. All change!
