Fight Like a Girl: How to Be a Fearless Feminist

by Megan Seely
£11.50   paperback  New York University Press (2007)

Fight Like a Girl: How to Be a Fearless Feminist by Megan Seely A fearless vision for the future of feminism. By boldly detailing what is at stake for women and girls today, Megan Seely outlines the necessary steps to achieve true political, social and economic equity for all. Reclaiming feminism for a new generation, Fight Like A Girl speaks to young women who embrace feminism in substance but not necessarily in name.

With an eye toward what it takes to create actual change, Seely offers a practical guide for how to get involved, take action and wage successful events and campaigns.

The book is full of valuable resources for novice and committed activists alike, including such features as How to Write a Press Release, Guidelines to a Good Media Interview, A Feminist Shopping Guide, and a list of over 100 Fabulous Feminist Resources, including organizations, websites, and events to attend. Each chapter is full of ideas, both big and small, for ways to get involved, get active, and make a difference.

Exploring such issues as body image and self-acceptance, education and empowerment, health and sexuality, political representation, economic justice, and violence against women, Fight Like A Girl looks at the challenges that women and girls face while emphasizing the strength that they independently, and collectively, embody. Seely delves into the politics of the feminist movement, exploring both womens history and current day realities with easy-to-follow lists and timelines like those on Women Who Made A Difference, Chronology of the U.S. Womens Movement, and Dos and Donts for Young Feminists.

A Third Wave manifesto as well as an introduction to feminism for a new generation, Fight Like A Girl is a powerful blueprint for young women today.

"Want to know what it means to be a feminist of the third wave? Megan Seely's Fight Like a Girl is the answer; there's enough information here to make you angry and enough resources to make you an effective activist."
—Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards, co-authors of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism and the Future
