For feminists young and old, this guidebook is the most informative and up to date book I have found currently on the market. A Girl’s Guide to Joining the Resistance by Emma Gray would make an incredible graduation gift for any young woman about to make her way into the world, and would also be equally beneficial to anyone is who is tired of feeling aggravated but needs help getting started in activism.
This is a guidebook which means it not only provides a historical and cultural framework for feminism but also provides steps to help you the reader actually get involved. This includes a list of ways to get involved, and also information on organizations you can partner with to start your activism.
I personally love the section of the book that shares songs to listen to and movies/tv shows to watch when you need to feel motivated. I am currently watching The Handmaids Tale on Hulu (one of the shows they recommend) and ooo boy if that doesn’t get you fired up, I don’t know what will!
The world only gets better when those fighting for good take a stand. Let this book help you take the first steps to creating change!
