Jaclyn Friedman reads, in her punchy, smart style, her well-written cultural critique of sex, power and gender. She uses lots of current examples of sexual freedom fighters who are creating change in many communities across North America to show us how and what is being done and inspires the listener to figure out how they want to make a contribution, finishing the book with a list of suggestions for how we can create change. She acknowledges that change is incremental and that we must celebrate all of our wins along the way, and shares her own experiences of taking on Facebook and her college campus to make the environment safer for women, less sexist and stronger in how it deals with violence against women. Her definition of Fauxpowerment challenges the false empowerment tropes that litter our media and invites the listener to be critical of the way female empowerment is packaged and sold back to us. This is a must read for anyone who cares about the status quo around gender and race and wants to look at sex and power with a more critical lens so we can find ways to unscrew ourselves. Unscrewed is a total gift.
I loved this book! Great information and inspiration to make this world a better, safer place for everyone.
