Description


Now in its updated second edition, Full Frontal Feminism is a book that continues to embody the forward-looking messages that author Jessica Valenti propagated as founder of the popular website, Feministing.com.

Full Frontal Feminism is a smart and relatable guide to the issues that matter to today's young women. This edition includes a new foreword by Valenti, reflecting upon what's happened in the seven years since Full Frontal Feminism was originally published. With new openers from Valenti in every chapter, the book covers a range of topics, including pop culture, health, reproductive rights, violence, education, relationships, and more.

Chapters include:

You're a Hardcore Feminist. I Swear.
Feminists Do It Better (and Other Sex Tips)

Since its original publication, Full Frontal Feminism has reassured readers--yeah, you're feminists, and that's actually pretty cool.
