We here at Resist Racism have five copies of this book for five of our readers. The lucky recipients will be chosen at whim. Your chances are greatly increased if you are a known commenter, have a blog and write about social justice issues. We will strongly encourage bloggers to write reviews of the book, thoughts about separate essays or any other relevant musings (which we would like to cross-post, as we have been very busy and unable to write lately).
If you would like to enter this not-so-random contest, please provide a compelling reason you should receive a book. But do not provide your mailing address, as we do not wish to make it available to everybody on the internet for all eternity. Thanks and good luck!
Against a backdrop exposing a 500+ year legacy of colonization and oppression, Feminism FOR REAL explores what has led us to the existence of “feminism”, who gets to decide what it is, and why. With stories that make the walls of academia come tumbling down, it deals head-on with the conflicts of what feminism means in theory as opposed to real life, the frustrations of trying to relate to definitions of feminism that never fit no matter how much you try to change yourself to fit them, and the anger of changing a system while being in the system yourself.
