"We live in a society where sex is used against women as much as it’s used by women.

"We live in a society where sex is used against women as much as it’s used by women. Sexy Feminism calls foul on that (and other) double standards—and makes manifest my frequent observation that feminists are almost always the sexiest people in the room.” —Jennifer Baumgardner, author of F’em!: Goo Goo, Gaga, and Some Thoughts on BallsNot your mother’s feminism! A humor-filled action plan for an accessible, cool, and, yes, even sexy brand of 21st-century feminismFeminism can still seem like an abstract idea that is hard to incorporate into our hectic, modern lives, but Jennifer Keishin Armstrong and Heather Wood Rudúlph show how the everyday things really matter. In an age when concern-trolling, slut-shaming, and body-snarking are blogosphere bywords, when reproductive rights are back under political attack, and when women are constantly pressured to “have it all,” feminism is more relevant than ever. For many young women the radicalism of the Second Wave is unappealing, and the “do me” and “lipstick” feminism of the Third Wave feels out of date. Enter Sexy Feminism. It’s an inclusive, approachable kind of feminism—miniskirts, lip gloss, and waxing permitted. Covering a range of topics from body issues and workplace gender politics to fashion, dating, and sex, Sexy Feminism is full of advice, resources, and pop culture references that will help shape what being a feminist can look like for you.“Genius! Sexy Feminism is a delicious primer for budding feminists (and the feminist-curious), as well as a sigh of relief for long-term third-wave feminists who long to be understood and are tired of explaining our beliefs. Jennifer and Heather do an outrageously good service to us all by bringing feminism into its sexy, confident maturity.” —Katie Goodman, feminist comedian and actress

This was interesting. Trying to find what is empowering and not internalized misogyny can be tricky. This might help some women strive to find their own balance between the two.

Feminism isn't as "clear cut" as it was back in the 1970's. Is marrying anti-feminist? What about carefree, casual sex? Or thongs? Or Brazilians? Or a career? Armstrong and Rudulph take a look at several issues which are big feminist topics - cosmetic surgery, waxes, dating, sex, contraceptive...

See more of my reviews sooner on The YA Kitten! My copy was an ARC I received via Amazon Vine.Strike one came when it tried twice to market feminism as sexy and fun. Strike two came when it called Lady Gaga a feminist icon. Strike three was the inappropriate use of a word I despise as a feminist: sl...

5.0 Sexy Feminism: A Girl's Guide to Love, Success, and Style
While by no mean's an in-depth treatise on Feminism, it is a an eminently readable discussion of Feminism in reflection to the lives many of us want to live. It definitely made me reflect on a few things about myself, such as why many of us, myself included, find the label feminist uncomfortable. ...
