Summary
In this ground-breaking collection, more than 50 cutting-edge voices invite us to imagine a truly feminist world. An abortion provider reinvents birth control, a teenage rock band dreams up a new way to make music and Maya Dusenbery resets the standard for good sex. Combining essays, interviews, poetry, illustrations and short stories, The Feminist Utopia Project challenges the status quo that accepts inequality and violence as a given - and inspires us to demand a radically better future.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Mapping out a perfect world created for feminists and by feminists would result in a Venn diagram with overlapping wants and needs, goals and ideals. Although it can certainly be argued that what's good for the female portion of the population is also good for it in its entirety, there is a significant difference when one analyzes essential issues as if they were developed from the get-go with women in mind. The 57 intense and inventive essays, poems, drawings, and interviews gathered here cover everything from body image to constitutional law, sexual orientation to economic justice, race relations, and language variations. The result is a collection that offers a vision for a feminist-friendly future world by deconstructing the failures of the past and acknowledging the realities of the present. Born of a collaboration between two recent college graduates, the Feminist Utopia Project is less than three years old; yet in that short time, Brodsky and Nalebuff have captured the vibrancy that is currently infusing a new generation of feminists, while challenging the limitations still informed by politics and history.--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2015 Booklist"
