Publisher's Summary

A witty take on feminism for every woman who wants equality but sometimes wants a day off from fighting for it

Sometimes we feel a bit like "I'm a feminist, but...." As in, "I'm a feminist, but I skipped the Women's March to buy face cream." As in, "I'm a feminist, but I've never found time to read Sylvia Plath (but I have watched 15 seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians)." 

In The Guilty Feminist, Deborah Frances-White reassures us that we don't have to be perfect to be a force for meaningful change. Exploring big issues of identity, equality, intersectionality, and the current feminist agenda, she explodes the myth of the model activist and offers a realistic path toward changing the world.

What the critics say

"A witty book full of insights, opinions, and good advice." (Kirkus)

"Her 'Open Letter from the Gentlemen of Hollywood', a riposte to the Weinstein saga, is worth the cover price alone." (Sunday Times)

"This really is the 'everything you have always wanted to know about feminism but were afraid to ask' manual. Essential reading for the planet." (Emma Thompson)

DFW

Amazing book. Discovered her podcast in early 2016 and have followed along weekly since then. I love how the book takes us through her growth as a feminist, with the acknowledgement that we are all always learning and growing.

A must-read

So insightful, perfectly delivered, I've been recommending this book to everybody. One of the best credits I've spent on audible.

Feminism without borders

it's not as funny as the podcast (still funny though) and it's not going to educate you on the depths of feminist theory. I think that's exactly the point. it's about how feminism and daily life can get together and get along. Most specifically, it's about how you can be a (better?) feminist without giving up romcoms, makeup... husbands..etc. unless you prefer to. you don't have to stop being you and become a feminist: this is about how to be better at being yourself. It's a feminist thing to do.

Amazing!

This is an essential book for anyone interested in feminism. I'm a big fan of Deborah's podcast & this book is everything I hoped it would be be based on the pod - inspiring, educational & hilarious
