What is feminism? Why are we still talking about it, and what can it tell us about ourselves, our societies and prejudices? 
 
In this unique, illustrated introduction, we''ll explore the early history of conscious struggle against sexist oppression, through the modern "waves" of feminism, up to present-day conversations about MeToo, intersectional feminism, and women''s rights in the MiddleEast. We''ll look at critical theory, popular action and the social and cultural forces that affect attitudes toward gender, women''s lives and the struggle for equality.
