I decided to take a break from fiction books. I picked up this book instead. The book, Bad Feminist, is a book by the author named Roxane Gay. Bad Feminist is a funny and an articulate book. It is a book of essays. It is a memoir. It is also a critical analysis of today’s world from the eyes of a feminist.
The author talks about her journey as a feminist. The author writes about what it means to be a feminist in today’s world. She writes anecdotes about her life. She uses these anecdotes as a way to discuss feminism. She also writes about pop culture, about race, and about her issues with the opposite-sex. She is critical and makes reflections about the world and the culture of the 21st century while making comments about feminism in the current world.
Bad Feminist is a call-to-arms that encourages women to be feminists. The book encourages women to be, “bad feminists.” Let me explain. It encourages women to be whatever-type-of-feminist that they want to be regardless of labels and the different beliefs people have about what a feminist should be, or what a feminist should not be.
The book is also written with an engaging voice. The author writes in a personable way. The author writes with wit and humor. There are parts of this book that are laugh-out-loud funny. There are also parts of the book that are thoughtful.
I thought the book was smart and funny. Overall, I give this book an 8/10 rating.
Until next time…
Always with infinite love,
