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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thoughtful Really liked this book - she offers a lot of good arguments (although a lot of repetition from things I already knew). She's funny, so it helps with the read. Educational on why feminism is such a bad word.
