Summary, etc.:
"A timely and impassioned exploration of how our society has commodified feminism and continues to systemically shut out women of color--perfect for fans of White Fragility and Good and Mad"-- Provided by publisher.
Join the important conversation about race, empowerment, and inclusion in the United States with this powerful new feminist classic and rousing call for change. Koa Beck, writer and former editor-in-chief of Jezebel, boldly examines the history of feminism, from the true mission of the suffragettes to the rise of corporate feminism with clear-eyed scrutiny and meticulous detail. She also examines overlooked communities--including Native American, Muslim, transgender, and more--and their difficult and ongoing struggles for social change.
