  • Feminism that is positive for women and men

    I was alerted to this book by Goodreads friend review, and bought the audio book, narrated beautifully by the author. Right from the start, I was hooked. Although I am quite different to the author (race, nationality, age, occupation …), her ideas of feminism immediately resonated with me. She describes herself as a: “happy African feminist, who does not hate men and who likes to wear lip gloss and high heels for herself and not for men” OK, I’m not African, I could leave off the lip gloss and high heels – but otherwise, it sort of sums me up. The author sees feminism as promoting the opportunities and possibilities in the lives of females WITHOUT taking anything away from males. She sees feminism as a positive affirmation of female life – of not being held back by antiquated and preconceived ideas of what a woman can or should be, of doing things because they mean something to you, not just to men or society. “The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be, rather than recognising how we are. Imagine how much happier we would be, how much freer, to be our true individual selves if we didn’t have the weight of gender expectations” “What if – in raising children - we focus on ability instead of gender. What if we focus on interest instead of gender.” I was really impressed with this book, with its very well-reasoned arguments, and illustrative anecdotes, and am really keen to read more of this author’s work. Highly recommended
