by Jamia Wilson, illustrated by Aurélia Durand
Fans of Tiffany Jewell's This Book is Anti-Racist may recognize the look and feel of this accessible guide to feminism. Author Jamia Wilson is an activist, writer, speaker, pod-caster, and the former director of the Feminist Press. One of the aspects that makes this book so special is that Wilson frames feminism as a movement of enlightened collective consciousness, and her message continually reinforces how progress can only be made through intersectional, inclusive growth. She skillfully weaves the history of the feminist movement and inspiring leaders (centering people of color) with personal anecdotes. Calls to action and places for readers to reflect on their own experiences connect the history to progress. Colorful illustrations by Aurélia Durand represent a wide spectrum of feminists and add another dimension to this inviting presentation.
