"However you define feminism, read this book . . . Race, privilege, gender, sexuality; the work to be done, your invitation to the conversation, is here" (Karen Walton, screenwriter of Orphan Black). In a world where sexual harassment allegations regularly dominate news coverage and in which fifty-three percent of white women voted for Donald Trump, F-Bomb presents an urgent and necessary discussion on women's lives today. Everywhere we turn, there's evidence anti-feminist bombs have exploded, sometimes detonated by the unlikeliest suspects. Between women who say they don't need feminism and women who can't agree on what feminism should be, the challenges of fighting for gender equality have never been greater. F-Bomb takes readers on a witty, insightful, and deeply fascinating journey into today's anti-feminist universe as investigative journalist and feminist Lauren McKeon explores generational attitudes, debates over inclusiveness, and differing views on the intersection of race, class, and gender. She asks the uncomfortable question: If women aren't connecting with feminism, what's wrong with it? And she confronts the difficult truth: For gender equality to prevail, we first need to understand where feminism has gone wrong and where it can go from here. This book is not authorized by and has no relationship to the Women's Media Center FBomb, an inclusive feminist blog that has been publishing since 2009. See www.womensmediacenter.com/fbomb. "A much-needed commentary that will both anger and inspire you." -Rachel Ricketts, activist, speaker, and writer "The antidote to feeling at a loss for examples of why intersectional feminism is so very urgently needed now . . . McKeon has written a necessary call to action." -Erin Wunker, author, Notes from a Feminist Killjoy
