Manifesta is a breath of fresh air. At last, Gen X takes on feminism and revamps a feminist manifesto for a new era.

With wit and honesty, Manifesta shows us the building blocks of the future of this longest revolution. --Gloria Steinem Great news from the front--feminism lives! Bold, independent, generous, and cautionary, Manifesta leaves no doubt that for a new generation of women the F-word is not only speakable but shoutable and singable. To learn the tune and catch the beat, read this book. --Alix Kates Shulman Manifesta is another step toward the empowerment of women. If caring about women matters, this book matters. --Andrea Dworkin Manifesta was the inspiration for my movie The Itty Bitty Titty Committee.
