What is a feminist? And how does one ‘feminist’ today? This question is answered in Feminist Activism 2.0: 101 Tips to Contribute, Lead, and Make a Positive Impact with the New Feminist Revolution.
Referred to as the F word, feminism previously was regarded as a negative and manhating movement. Then something changed. Feminism, according to Merriam-Webster, was the most searched word in 2017. More than 3 million people attended the inaugural Women's March on Washington. A feminist ran for president and won the popular vote. The #MeToo hashtag appeared 1.7 million times in 85 nations.
The renewed interest in and incredible velocity of this social, political and cultural movement demands a new meaning. It is time to launch Feminism 2.0.
In the book Feminist Activism 2.0, feminist Megan Hussey offers the definitive feminist how to guide; exploring the definition and activities of the nouveau feminist movement, and identifying the women (and men) leading this movement.
How can a woman support Feminism 2.0? How can a man? Is Oprah Winfrey the ultimate feminist? How about Jesus Christ? Can feminism be joyful and positive? And do we need it?
Feminism is no longer the f word—unless, of course, the f word is question is fabulous and functional; sometimes, even fun!
