All in a younger voice that still speaks of being a real teen.

Though I knew the history of Feminism before I read the book, I enjoyed the refresher.

I was initially excited to read a book written by a young woman for young women (and men) about feminism, but I was quickly disappointed, I felt like it was geared towards someone much younger than me, I am 19, and that the tone was just pandering. By the 40th time you say "badass" it doesn't make the book relatable, it just detracts from your argument. I thought the book did offer a decent summary of feminism, but did seem to brush over topics, there was never any in depth analysis.

I saw Julie Zeilinger on Melissa Harris-Perry's show a while back and was very impressed. And now that I have read her book I am even more impressed. She is well-versed and taught this old lady a thing or two.

I've always thought of myself as a feminist but until recently I felt I only vaguely knew what that was. Even with being a young adult during the last "wave," the arsonists. No, I never burned my bra but back then didn't feel I needed one either. But in the midst of all of that I went along with the pre-programed life set up by society at large and did the wedding and kids. I wonder sometimes how life might have been had I chosen to continue my education.

Ms. Zeilinger taught me more about my history than I could have gotten on my own. She boiled it down to readable bites and showed us how to use and understand the information presented. All in a younger voice that still speaks of being a real teen. I must admit that the times I have tried to do the research of my 'sisters' I would get bored or shake my head at the man-haters. But Julie conveyed the knowledge in ways I could understand.

This is a book everyone should read and then go out and respect everyone.

Zeilinger addresses Feminism from such a fresh perspective. Though I knew the history of Feminism before I read the book, I enjoyed the refresher. I also enjoy her style immensely. I have loaned the book out to my students so many times that I will be in need of a new copy soon from the wear & tear it has received. I teach high school and college courses, and the content is easily accessible to all students, male and female, of both levels/age groups.

The book focused more on history than I expected, but I did learn new things and other parts of the book were very funny. Thank you for the work you do, keep it up!

Note: I do need to correct you on one thing. Nick Carter was in the Backstreet Boys, not NSYNC!
