A witty take on feminism for every woman who wants equality but sometimes wants a day off from fighting for it Sometimes we feel a bit like “I’m a feminist, but…” As in, “I’m a feminist, but I skipped the Women’s March to buy face cream.” As in, “I’m a feminist, but I’ve never found time to read Sylvia Plath (but I have watched fifteen seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians)." In The Guilty Feminist, Deborah Frances-White reassures us that we don’t have to be perfect to be a force for meaningful change. Exploring big issues of identity, equality, intersectionality, and the current feminist agenda, she explodes the myth of the model activist and offers a realistic path toward changing the world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Her 'Open Letter from the Gentlemen of Hollywood,' a riposte to the Weinstein saga, is worth the cover price alone. Sunday Times (London)
“Deborah Frances–White and Adjoa Andoh work together to narrate this set of ruminations about contemporary womanhood and its many dilemmas. Frances–White has an upper-crust British accent that gives the questions she’s asking an added layer of importance…At the start of each chapter, Andoh provides short vocal clips of ironic statements that sum up the theme…If there ever was a title that could start an audio book club, this is it. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
This high-energy book reminds readers about the origins of feminism and how important it is for women to support each other. Booklist
With a distinct, lively, and consistently hilarious delivery, Frances-White upends common misconceptions-feminists, she assures readers, can love lipstick and men-and encourages readers to do "what you can, when you can" to end oppressive power structures. Feminists of any stripe will be moved by this rousing, funny, highly appreciative exhortation to 'smash the patriarchy like a strong, green, healthy plant breaking through the foundations of an old house.' Publishers Weekly
“Essential reading for the planet.” Emma Thompson, award-winning actress
Tackles issues from democracy to sexuality to porn with a lightness and hilarity that makes even the newly ordained feminist feel at home. Scarlett Curtis, author of Feminists Don't Wear Pink and Other Lies
