Description


We Don't Need Another Wave is the next generation of feminists' response to the question of whether or not they self-define as third-wave feminists. Today's young feminists are wary of being labeled. They are media-savvy, hyper-aware of being categorized and marginalized, and are here to tell the world that feminists are feminists-diverse in age and experience-and that it's time to drop the labels in favor of proactive agendas and united goals.

The contributors to this collection are women, along with some men and genderbenders, who grapple with the conviction to remain true to themselves and their values in a culture that treats feminism as a dirty word. Topics that matter to young feminists range from lighter issues, such as DIY culture and craftivism, to heavy-hitting issues that feminists have struggled with for generations, including abuse, rape, shame, and self-hatred. The young writers in this collection band together under the banner of feminism to share the message that the F-Word is a good thing, and that feminists are breaking new ground while still valuing the traditions and achievements of their foresisters and foremothers.
