our generation, from all walks of life. It's a good "starting point"
for people who are new to the whole feminist thing, and a refreshing

in all, good stuff. You'll laugh, you'll cry. Trust me.

women and girls today. The book focuses on the difficulties that young
women of color and young white women face, examining both the vast
differences and striking similarities.
Wave Agenda: Being Feminist, Doing Feminism,
Leslie Heywood and Jennifer Drake, eds.
collection of stories from the young feminists, but this one focuses

at the history of parts of the feminist movement, critiques them,
and puts into perspective our tasks for tomorrow.
