We Were Feminists Once

The first book I read this year was We Were Feminists Once by Andi Zeisler. It's a fascinating examination of how brands have figured out how to market using the feminist agenda, and how that has hurt and helped the movement.

I also appreciated how Zeisler talks very frankly about the importance of intersectional feminism. The Women's March on Washington has definitely started a lot of conversations about the privilege surrounding white feminism and why it's so important for our feminism to be intersectional. We need to feminism to focus on racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, xenophobia, classism, etc. We need to fight for everyone right now. So if you're confused about intersectionality, check out We Were Feminists Once. I think you'll enjoy it and hopefully expand your knowledge of this movement.

So in the spirit of feminism and consumerism, I've put together this cute bookish outfit. Everything except the shoes and jeans are from a small business, so think about supporting them.
