Would you consider yourself a feminist? If so, what does this mean in your daily life?
A new book, 'Feminism Is', seeks to explore feminism from the varying perspectives of some of South Africa's leading voices on feminism.
The book features contributions from Danielle Bowler, Rebecca Davis and Prof. Pumla Dineo Gqola.
It's edited by feminist writer and researcher, Jen Thorpe.
The ideas around what it [feminism] can be have expanded, but it's like a lens to look at the world, and what it shows you is that there's certain things that are wrong with the world that don't have to stay that way.— Jen Thorpe, editor, 'Feminism Is'
If you read this collection and you don't see the value of advancing gender equality or gender equity, then you've missed something.— Jen Thorpe, editor, 'Feminism Is'
The book is available from bookstores now, published by NB publishers.
