    1. I ll give this a 5 out of 5 stars It was very easy to read and understand The illustrations complimented the written work perfectly and it introduced me to so many influential feminist works I now have such a long its of books and articles to read, this guide did a wonderful job at introducing feminism clearly I would recommend this book to everyone, especially the people who claim they hate feminism without knowing what it really is I already recommended this book to a guy friend after debating [...]

    2. For such a brief introduction 176 pages to such a broad topic, I feel like Introducing Feminism A Graphic Guide did an admirable job of covering a broad range of the history and types of western feminism.This is probably the first introduction to feminism that I ve read that included this level of detail on the history of feminism Beginning before the first wave was even close and leading all the way up to the time when the book was published 2007 , it covers a wide variety of feminists, concept [...]

    3. An easy to read historical crash course on feminism that taught me quite a few things I wasn t well versed in However, it conspicuously lacks almost any account of third wave feminism, and worryingly ignores trans women all together Black feminism is accounted for, but only with a few pages, a stark contrast to the hundred pages the development of white English and America suffragettes and thinkers It s almost entirely a Western account, which gets a little limiting Happy International Women s [...]

    4. As the book title indicates, this is a book to get you started on Feminism By no means is it an end I wanted to brush up on the latest developments and revise its history a bit And that explains why this was my weekend read It s an interesting take a graphic almost full length work on a topic of non fiction But I felt a bit removed from a topic that I care so much about I can t help but compare with Peter Barry s Beginning Theory, which was a very good survey of isms of the 21st century Barry s [...]

    5. I like and respect this book, which does a great job of introducing quite a wide spread of historical and contemporary attitudes towards advocating feminism It comes with some great quotes, delivered nicely as part of its graphic illustrations, and does an admirable job of presenting the many different stances on contemporary feminists in particular.It does also feature some introduction to black feminism and the plight or supposed plight of women in the Third World , but there s remarkably lit [...]

    6. This was fun I definitely learned some things I didn t know I do wish it had included information about modern third wave feminism and things like trans inclusive feminism or feminism for other minorities So basically, I guess I wish it was longer.

    7. This is a very standard introduction I learned a few interesting details but found there to be a lot missing and the book primarily focusing on the mainstream history of feminism and although it addresses the lack of diversity in both feminism and the telling of it, the book falls into the same trap I disagreed with a couple of the perspectives and how they were posited in the book but it is a good quick primer.

    8. I gave it a 5 5 because it is everything you d expect A bird s eye view to the history of feminism Not extremely detailed but gives you enough information reference to continue reading about a subject if you d like to.

    9. Excellent introduction to feminism, covers the strong women who led the way, the classic feminist texts and the challenges still faced.

    10. This is a wonderfully engaging and entertaining book The combination of succinct writings, quotes, and pictorial depictions of the movement or person being discussed wonderfully keeps the reader engaged All of the sections are short enough to allow the reader to read this book in the spare moments she or he might find between activities Personally, I read this book at school while walking around the room and monitoring my students reading in their literature circles.I do think that this book is [...]

    11. it was pretty good introduction if it expanded on some of the ideas that would have earned it a higher rating yet all in all pretty good i gained a better understanding on the movement and its effects yet the most interesting thing for me was that the reactionaries or the men who stood against the movement had a very similar rhetoric like in past 100 years we stayed almost the same interesting nonetheless importantly i was like surprised and rather filled with love when i read that feminist wer [...]

    12. all of the shallow slogans and none of the reason the history of feminism is well done, but there is nothing beyond the slogans of the various movements so the authors mark the injustice of the woman being fired because she is pregnant, but nothing about the woman being awarded for getting pregnant there is the talk about the objectification of the woman through say beauty pageants, yet nothing about the State lead institution The Motherhood so it s good as an introduction and nothing .

    13. This is not an in depth detailed look at Feminism but the clue is in the title Introduction It s very fast paced and sometimes seems to jump around Plus the cartoons are mostly unreadable on Kindle but that s not the author s fault But it does what it says on the tin and is very accessible.

    14. I enjoyed this book It is a very accessible basic timeline of feminism, albeit mostly focusing on the white, western experience It is a good starting point for someone wanting to educate themselves but could cover a broader range of viewpoints, and it only covers first and second wave feminism.

    15. ok fazla isim ge iyor ama feminizmin k sa bi tarihi gibi d n rsek ok normal lginiz varsa ok ak c ve ilgi ekici gidiyor.

    16. Just in time for International Women s Dayetty enlighting about the fights, struggles and wins to achieve rights equality for women, past and present, worldwide A fight that must go on.

    17. Reading this book was truly enlightening for ages my brother was trying to convince me to expand my reading horizons to read complicated and developed books as well as non fiction being a female with strong feminist views i decided finally that i would read this book.i will first start by addressing just the style of these graphic guides well it was extraordinary, they are really graphic guides they include many picture of the historical people and their actions and the writing is all over the [...]

    18. This is a solid source to begin learning about the history of feminism with illustrations not so pretty imo It shows what a bumpy ride it has been fighting for equal rights and to be seen as a human being in chronological order It s a very simple book which is good because it s also a history book in a way, which bored me sometimes But that s my problem So definitely pick it up if you wanna know what women have been doing to be able to vote, to have a job, to be than wives and mothers for centu [...]

    19. Interesting intro to the basic thoughts and discussions in both historical and contemporary feminism It s quite short and an easy read, though it does not flesh out a number of points so some concepts remain vague A good Further reading list is supplied and I assume it is to cover this defect.

    20. The term feminism came into English usage around the 1890s, but women s conscious struggle to resist discrimination and sexist oppression goes much further back This completely new and updated edition of Introducing Feminism surveys the major developments that have affected women s lives from the 17th century to the present day Introducing Feminism is an invaluable reference book for anyone seeking the story of how feminism reconfigured the world for women and men alike.Cathia Jenainati is Assoc [...]

    21. Really enjoyed reading this book It covers a long historical period and traces the development of women s struggles for equal rights up to their challenge of legal and social restrictions on them in the 21st century You won t find the selection covered here anywhere else, nor will you find the great though at times provocative ilustrations This book is a god send if you re taking a course at uni and you want to say impressive things in seminars It s full of facts and tells a very compelling stor [...]

    22. I understand this is an introduction to feminism and an illustrated one , so the author couldn t really go into much details, but I was pretty disappointed with the fact that she focuses so much on 1st and 2nd white feminism.There s a small section of the book about different black feminists, and a few pages about contemporary feminism and women in non Western countries, but it was disappointing to me that so little was said about them Also, there no mention of trans women and trans feminism, wh [...]

    23. While I have been a feminist for a long time now it hasn t been until I started to question current political and cutural standards that I would actually say that I advocate feminism This book has been a very good overview of the history of the struggle women went and are still going through It gave an insight on the most important milestones and the different feminisms that exist I am sure that I will continue to study some of the women mentioned in the book and to broaden my own perspective on [...]

    24. I love this book It was a great introductory book to understand feminism, including divergent approaches from different types of feminism The book focuses on the history of feminism in the US and England throughout time It also include a list of milestones in the history of feminism.The only thing I didn t like about the book was the illustrations made by Jude Groves, I didn t like her style but the content of the book is so great that I can forgive that detail.

    25. Had never read a linear history purely focusing on gender based discrimination nor had I read accounts or texts of feminist thinkers before An enlightening read, which has added about a dozen books to my to read list Would strongly recommend it as an excellent introduction and primer The illustrations and layout help with recall of the points made An excellent series
