Summary
Discover more than 85 of the most important ideas, movements, and events that have defined feminism and feminist thought throughout history with this original, graphic-led book.

Using the Big Ideas series' trademark combination of authoritative, accessible text and bold graphics, this book traces feminism and the feminist movement from its origins, through the suffragette movement of the 19th century, to recent developments such as the Everyday Sexism Project and the #MeToo movement. Entries explore and explain each idea, placing them in their social and cultural context.

Packed with inspirational quotations, profiles of key individuals and turning points, and flowcharts and infographics explaining the most significant concepts clearly and simply, The Feminism Book is perfect for anyone with an interest in female empowerment.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Feminism Book lives up to the Big Ideas series name, covering aspects of feminism from 1700 to the present. Each four-page section is prefaced by a primary quote from a significant feminist related to the issue, like Margaret Sanger in the section on birth control. A sidebar gives information on changes to the law wrought by key feminist figures. Using diagrams and accessible text, this is a remarkably detailed overview of the movement, changes, and parties involved. The book concludes with a directory of feminist thinkers and activists, a glossary, and a detailed index. Given the current attention women's issues are getting, this timely volume has a place in middle, high school, and public libraries.--Ann Welton Copyright 2019 Booklist"
