Brilliant, funny, and thought-provoking, this is an anthology of not-to-be-missed feminist writing in an unmissable package. The 21 pieces span generations and backgrounds and cover topics ranging from financial independence to resting bitch face. Poets, essayists, activists, actors, and professors write powerfully and candidly about what it means to be a feminist. Their impassioned voices are echoed in the vibrant cover and design-forward interior. This is the smart, covetable anthology ambitious women of all ages will turn to for support and inspiration in the ongoing fight for gender equality.

Not-to-be missed feminist writing in an unmissable package is the billing for this brilliant-looking anthology which spans generations and backgrounds, and cover topics ranging from financial independence to resting bitch face . -- The Bookseller an anthology that reflects the diversity of voices in feminism today, putting paid to the belief that there is a single narrative to which women should subscribe. Included in this exploration of politics, gender and power is an excerpt from Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Women and a vision of how to build a feminist society by Naomi Alderman. -- Harper's Bazaar The 21 pieces of writing contained in this well-designed book cover a wide spectrum of generations and backgrounds and cover topics ranging from financial independence to 'resting bitch face'. -- Actual Size This is one of the key strengths of The Future Is Feminist - a full commitment to diversity, not just in terms of races and generations, but also topics, styles and approaches, resulting in a varied, energising read. At the same time, all the pieces seem connected in spirit - signifying a thread between the generations that may, at times, have become frayed, but is ultimately unbreakable. -- The Observer's New Review One of the best of the recent influx of anthologies of feminist writing, Farrugla pulls together pieces from past and present to produce a sparkling, diverse collection of essays touching on everything from beauty standards to sex and pregnancy. From Sojournor Truth's 1851 cry from the heart Ain't I A Woman? to Mindy Kaling on cinema's female stereotypes, there is something from every feminist to read, enjoy and learn from. -- inews.co.uk A star-studded roster of iconic women write powerfully about what it means to be a feminist yesterday, today, and tomorrow. These poets, essayists, activists, actors, and professors address topics ranging from workplace harassment to resting bitch face. The results are by turns refreshing, provocative, moving, and hilarious. A diverse chorus of intersectional voices and a forward-looking stance set this book apart, and its vibrant, textured package makes it a beautiful gift. It's the smart, covetable anthology that women of all ages will turn to for support and inspiration in the ongoing fight for gender equality. -- The Guardian Bookshop
