Kwela Books/ NB Publishers, 2020
Many of our experiences are filtered through our bodies – norms, myths and cultural standards shape the way that we feel about our bodies and ourselves. Feminism says these rules are bullshit. This collection takes us from an examination of skin and hair, to an exploration of pleasure, sex and safety. They examine the way that institutions can trap us and how we can trap ourselves. It reminds us that feminism is dynamic, open and ever relevant.
“The stories in this book will make you scream, cry, laugh – and sometimes – all three at once. A brilliant and diverse collection of feminist voices.” – Alice Draper
