From pop icons to working mothers, women are abandoning feminism in unprecedented numbers. Even scarier, they are also leading the charge to send it to its grave. Across North America, women head anti-feminist PR campaigns; they support anti-feminist politicians; they''re behind lawsuits to silence the victims of campus rape; they participated in Gamergate, the violent, vitriolic anti-women-in-technology movement; and they''re on the frontlines of the fight to end abortion rights. Everywhere we turn there''s evidence an anti-feminist bomb has exploded, sometimes detonated by the unlikeliest suspects. Between women who say they don''t need feminism and women who can''t agree on what feminism should be, the challenges of fighting for gender equality have never been greater.

She asks the uncomfortable question: if women aren''t connecting with feminism, what''s wrong with it? And she confronts the uncomfortable truth: for gender equality to prevail, we first need to understand where feminism has gone wrong and where it can go from here.
