Publisher's Summary

Outspoken critic Jessa Crispin delivers a searing rejection of contemporary feminism...and a bracing manifesto for revolution.
Are you a feminist? Do you believe women are human beings and that they deserve to be treated as such? That women deserve all the same rights and liberties bestowed upon men? If so, then you are a feminist...or so the feminists keep insisting. But somewhere along the way, the movement for female liberation sacrificed meaning for acceptance, and left us with a banal, polite, ineffectual pose that barely challenges the status quo. In this bracing, fiercely intelligent manifesto, Jessa Crispin demands more.
Why I Am Not a Feminist is a radical, fearless call for revolution. It accuses the feminist movement of obliviousness, irrelevance, and cowardice - and demands nothing less than the total dismantling of a system of oppression.

All Men Should Read This

As a man, it was always really hard for me to understand why women might be disadvantaged. This book helped me see a lot of obvious stuff that was hiding in plain sight. I guess you don't see stuff if you don't want to.
