    This book helped me open my eyes to what it’s called intersectional feminism which seems logical for any feminist to be, yet when we see ourselves from its criteria, makes us realize most of us don’t even make the cut. They way we slight other people’s experiences because they’re different from ours, because of their race, gender, weight, hair, sexual orientation and instead of helping them surpass their own oppression, we turn a blind eye, it’s infuriatingly sad. This is why many women hesitate This book helped me open my eyes to what it’s called intersectional feminism which seems logical for any feminist to be, yet when we see ourselves from its criteria, makes us realize most of us don’t even make the cut.

This is why many women hesitate to call themselves feminists because they don’t feel included. Reading this book put me across the beginner of the path to empathy if I ever want to call myself a feminist. I have made zillion notes to look up and reread and the more to read list will go in to my reading list.

    I started to identify as a feminist around 7 years ago. However, in the past few years, I've realized how feminism has become mainstream, and even if at first it was something I celebrated, now I question that feminism which became dominant in our culture: cis-white feminism. I started to question calling myself a feminist as I saw how feminism was becoming trans-exclusionary, sex-work exclusionary, etc. and I no longer knew if I belonged there. Later, I discovered the concept of intersectionalit I started to identify as a feminist around 7 years ago.

Later, I discovered the concept of intersectionality and since then I knew I wanted to dedicate part of my time on this earth to practice an intersectional approach in my life. This collection of essays reminds me of how I still embrace feminism, while at the same time I am constantly questioning and that's ok. I thoroughly enjoy reading this anthology. Besides, I bought in London, which was the last city I visited with my boyfriend before the COVID era started, so it brings me memories of us being together and now far apart, which makes me nostalgic sometimes in good sense and sometimes in sadder sense.

    Very diverse and interesting essays from women of colour/ diversity/ disabilities and the LGBTQ+ community. I have never read a collection of essays with this much range of differing experiences, which is progressive and encouraging in itself. It made me feel represented.

    A great collection of essays by diverse authors, shining spotlights on their experiences and their sometimes difficult relationships with the word feminist. Even if you are well versed in the issues around intersectionality there will still be lots to learn from these womens' voices. Some of the essays are more challenging, nuanced or well written than others, but they are all full of important messages. This is a great book to give as a gift to someone wanting to know more any of the issues fac A great collection of essays by diverse authors, shining spotlights on their experiences and their sometimes difficult relationships with the word feminist. Even if you are well versed in the issues around intersectionality there will still be lots to learn from these womens' voices. Some of the essays are more challenging, nuanced or well written than others, but they are all full of important messages. This is a great book to give as a gift to someone wanting to know more any of the issues facing these women - disability, race, LGBTQIA+, immigration, body shaming, sex work - and how Western feminism has too often ignored or marginalised their experiences. And it is a challenge to us all - what are we doing to ensure our feminism is inclusive? As feminists we need to listen to the most marginalised women and ensure our feminism aligns with their issues. As allys we need to amplify these voices.
