Outspoken critic Jessa Crispin delivers a searing rejection of contemporary feminism . . . and a bracing manifesto for revolution. Are you a feminist? Do you believe women are human beings and that they deserve to be treated as such? That women deserve all the same rights and liberties bestowed upon men? If so, then you are a feminist . . . or so the feminists keep insisting. But somewhere along the way, the movement for female liberation sacrificed meaning for acceptance, and left us with a banal, polite, ineffectual pose that barely challenges the status quo. In this bracing, fiercely intelligent manifesto, Jessa Crispin demands more. Why I Am Not A Feminist is a radical, fearless call for revolution. It accuses the feminist movement of obliviousness, irrelevance, and cowardice—and demands nothing less than the total dismantling of a system of oppression. Praise for Jessa Crispin, and The Dead Ladies Project "I'd follow Jessa Crispin to the ends of the earth." --Kathryn Davis, author of Duplex "Read with caution . . . Crispin is funny, sexy, self-lacerating, and politically attuned, with unique slants on literary criticism, travel writing, and female journeys. No one crosses genres, borders, and proprieties with more panache." --Laura Kipnis, author of Men: Notes from an Ongoing Investigation "Very, very funny. . . . The whole book is packed with delightfully offbeat prose . . . as raw as it is sophisticated, as quirky as it is intense." --The Chicago Tribune

Feminism is arguably the most significant social movement of the last century and it is far from over. Sally Scholz unravels the fascinating coalition of social and political causes, goals, and ideals that came together to motivate the fight for women’s liberation. By taking powerful examples from women’s campaigns, Scholz highlights the ongoing relevance of this movement in parts of the world where the rights of women are still violated by such atrocities as genocide and war rape. Sally J. Scholz is Professor of Philosophy at Villanova University, Pennsylvania. She lives in Rosemount, Pennsylvania

Through this insightful book, she shares her own experiences with the hope that other women will learn from them. Follow her journey from living loneliness to loving singleness as she laces it with poetry reflecting her candid, honest emotions. What Readers Think About This Book "I was so compelled by your honesty and realness. The poetry was beautiful. Wow, what a gift!!! I also think that the questions were a very wise choice. Thank you for being brave enough to share your life through this book. Know that you have impacted me in a great way. You have confirmed and reiterated my position about relationships. This book was right on time. I will be re-reading it. I now understand the importance of knowing, loving, and understanding me!!!!" --D.Johnson, Florida "This book wasnt about feeling pity over singleness. It is a book that makes a woman look inside and assess who she really is." --M. Edwards, Florida "I am a married woman and still this book made me re-look the way that I sometimes treat my husband and the things that I have expected from him. The poetry alone brings insight and triumph to your spirit!" --J. Murrell, Florida "Though I have read many books, I really enjoyed reading this book by Mia Montgomery. I felt that the author really paid attention to some of the main reasons and the points as to why many women who are single. She dealt with issues that need to be corrected and addressed (reversing what mama told you) and how to function within a relationship without losing yourself. The author used evidence of her life and the lives of her friends in order to make her points clear. Her evidence was convincing because I felt as if I were walking in her shoes, but mostly I felt as if, the pages were answering questions to topics I wanted answers to but didn't know how or who to ask." "There are many books in bookstores that talk about being single, but I've yet to read a book where the author totally puts themself, their experiences, and their reputation on the pages, in hopes that you will learn from their mistakes and not repeat them. The information is unique and it offers fresh insight to single women that will help to empower us and build us up. I think the author was very successful in carrying out the purpose of the book. This is a book that will uplift and build women, during their season of being single." --L. Heriscar, Orlando, FL
