    1. This collection is EXTRAORDINARY I am 100% going to get my hands on a finished copy so I can dive back into this book whenever I need it which is probably a lot.It is perhaps never possible to adequately collect enough perspectives to present all aspects of feminism in its entirety, but this book comes damn close Here We Are Feminism for the Real World covers a wide range of intersectional feminist topics, featuring authors of all colours, races and religions, gay and trans authors, authors of a [...]

    2.

    3. tl dr Save for very brief parts where trans women wrote, this whole book was full of cis centric feminism and treated the trans nonbinary genderqueer community as an afterthought, or just didn t mention us at all It s like the brief mentions of us were just to say look, we included people who aren t cisgender We ve succeeded at intersectional feminism Give us brownie points Tl dr Feminism that s cis centric is not intersectional.Note I m only going to address the issues that pertain to me my lan [...]

    4. Usually I m a bit tongue tied finger tied when it comes to reviewing non fiction books But not this one I wasn t sure what to expect from a collection of feminist essays aimed at YA readers although I ve followed Kelly Jensen around online for years, so I trusted her to make something terrific This book lived up to all my hopes for it, and It s feminist and also highly intersectional, with contributions from white women, white men, POC women, POC men, transwomen and one transman, able women and [...]

    5. I am so very excited to have an essay in this anthology and am honored to be in the company of so many amazing contributors I can t wait to share about it closer to pub, and in the mean time, if it sounds like your thing, I hope you ll add it to your To Read list D

    6. Edit April 14, 2017 I changed my 5 star rating to a 2 star rating because of the recent worrying aphobic, biphobic, and panphobic statements and messages from Kelly Jensen, the editor, on Twitter and BookRiot articles.While this book was illuminating and included a wide array of voices, the lack of asexual representation and an incorrect definition of bisexuality is troubling and not something I wish to support with a higher starred rating.

    7. White Feminism at its finest The editor does not care about any woman who is unlike herself, and so this collection is a massive fail at intersectionality The failure ranges from fake allyship at best to outright hatred, erasure, and exclusion at worst.

    8. I suppose I should start with one of those disclaimers about how I received a free electronic copy of this from NetGalley and Algonquin Young Readers However, I also preordered two hard copies with my own money OK, someone else s money in gift card form even before that request was approved But why wait a whole three weeks when I could read it earlier than that That s how excited I am for Here We Are 44 Voices Write, Draw, and Speak About Feminism for the Real World It turns out that this book i [...]

    9. What an impressive and necessary book For teen readers who are hearing about feminism good or bad opinions about it and want to know and learn about how different people express feminism, this is a MUST For teen readers who identify as feminist and want to get different perspectives on it, this is a MUST For teen readers who have never once thought about feminism in their lives, this is a MUST Kelly Jensen has pooled together a really impressive line up of writers and artists talking about what [...]

    10. ARC from Baker and TaylorThanks to this book, I know I need to identify myself as an old school or second wave feminist Not having been around prior to 1920 Third or fourth wave feminism strays from what my mother and I saw as essential feminist sociopolitical concerns and includes issues such as sexual identity, sexual orientation, mental illness, etc For me, these are side issues that dilute the power of the movement, but for younger feminists, this interesctionality is key to their involvemen [...]

    11. This was a really great collection of stories writing pieces that was extremely inspiring, eye opening, and vital to this day in society I thought that the different pieces and authors were all so interesting and educational I learned a lot about feminism in general but also about intersectional feminism and what it does and does not mean to call yourself a feminist There were a lot of diverse authors and topics discussed in this book and I loved seeing feminism discussed by people of all differ [...]

    12. THIS SOUNDS AWESOME.LOOK AT THAT COVER.I would have preferred an entire new book by Courtney Summers, but this will do I can t wait

    13. Editor is incredibly aphobic and dismissed and tone policed the ace aro community over concern over a book blurb twitter lainasparetime stThe book itself seems to be super cissexist twitter faulknerpainter sAnd from what I ve seen of the editing, it s sloppy and allows outdated ideas and misinformation to stand.For example, He She Ze They Hir Queer Trans A WHAT IS THIS A What does this even mean Will not read.

    14. This anthology is so good Brilliant and diverse I wish I d had this as a teen I might have avoided a decade of self loathing.

    15. There were a lot of interesting and thought provoking pieces in this anthology My favourite thing about it was that the pieces felt like they were in exactly the right order, they seemed to flow well from one essay into the next The thing I struggled with most about the book was the way that the book claimed to be diverse I felt like the book was just trying to tick diversity off the list, rather than actually be inclusive I was not represented here Overall, I enjoyed this collection a lot, but [...]

    16. There will come a time when you no longer feel like fighting when all the little injustices in the world build up, and nothing you can do seems like enough to stop them On that day, you will take a deep breath, sit down, and pick up HERE WE ARE FEMINISM FOR THE REAL WORLD It will act as a band aid to the wounds the world has inflicted on you, a balm against the ongoing tide of hate, and inspire you to stand up and keep fighting And then you will pass it along, because somebody else will feel tha [...]

    17. I received this free from the publisher via NetGalleyHere We Are Feminism for the Real World is an inclusive and feminist as hell anthology featuring numerous essays on numerous topics and what feminism means to them It features playlists, reading lists, and illustrations I believe Here We Are Feminism for the Real World should be essential reading for feminists Here We Are Feminism for the Real World features powerful pieces from a diverse collection of authors from a variety of socio economic [...]

    18. This is a MUST READ for everyone in my opinion There were so many articles I could relate to and others that were eye opening This answered so many questions I didn t even realize I had about feminism and I felt it really focused on all topics that fall under feminism I will be coming back to a lot of these essays in the future.

    19. This was a great introduction to feminism Not only that, it made some great points and made me think about other issues other books I ve read never talked about.I highly recommend this the essays were short but packed and deeply personal There were also drawings and photos and some book recommendations thanks, my tbr list is never ending now.My favorite pieces were from Roxane Gay, Lily Myers, Constance Zaber, Kayla Whaley, Rafe Posey, Zariya Allen, Amanda Stenberg, Mikki Kendall, Jessica Luther [...]

    20. An incredibly engaging collection of essays, and one of the most important non fiction YA reads of the year Buy it for every teenage girl in your life Buy it for every teenage boy in your life Buy it for every teenager who doesn t conform to the gender binary Hell, I know many, many adults who would benefit from the messages contained in this diverse celebration of feminism I know I did.One thing that really struck me about this anthology is that there really is something for everybody While it [...]

    21. I hope that plenty of teen girls read this and learn about feminism I honestly don t know if this would have been a difference maker for me when I was in high school and I didn t come into my feminism until college, but I think it was a less common word ten years ago I learned everything I needed to know in my Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies class, then did a lot of my own reading and directed study afterwards Since then, it s been a huge part of discourse with celebrities and politics For [...]

    22. I absolutely super duperly hugely loved this collection of art, poems and essays from all kinds of people about 21st Century feminism It made me feel all the feels and I m pretty sure my heart broke multiple times throughout this book This is such an important book that I URGE everyone to read If you re not into feminism or you don t like to label yourself as one, it s still an influential read to hear about others experiences and way of lives in today s society Gah, just go read it.I m so glad [...]

    23. There were parts of this I LOVED but the Pop Culture section made me a little meh because of things included and some things that were not included as well I would have enjoyed trigger warnings on the essays about what to be expected for potential triggers However this has a good spectrum of inclusion and information about feminism and what it means to be a modern feminist I highly recommend it

    24. This is geared to teens but is really a must read for everyone It features a variety of voices, both male and female, also non binary, gender fluid, etc Voices of different ages and cultures All of these voices speak about feminism and it s importance Myths are debunked, questions answered, and a lot of important points are made I think no matter where you are on your feminist journey, there is an essay in this collection that will speak to you Highly recommend.

    25. So great It was relatable, inspirational, informative I loved how it teaches to embrace feminism from every aspect of our lives.I lovedCourtney Summers piece on the likeability of female characters It s a subject I contemplate a lot, because is there s one thing I love isflawed female characters It s unbelievable how people immediately start hating of characters once they realise that yeah, despite being fictional, charactersnot one sided, not perfect nor unable to make mistakes.And this is even [...]

    26. 4.5 starsI ve read quite a few What Feminism Means In The Real World type books recently and it s not really something that is going to get old any time soon for me There are so many different takes on feminism and so many ways it can be interpreted, I always find some new or interesting way of looking at things And that s why I think this book worked so well it has like fifty contributors, so there are lots of opinions to read about.One of the things I liked most was the range of intersectional [...]
