A Girl’s Guide to Joining the Resistance: A Feminist Handbook on Fighting for Good
This reader expected so much more from this book. Even the touted “two color illustrations” look like clip art, and much of this book seems pulled together without coherence or deep meaning. Certainly, there are many women’s stories to inspire young girls to a life of activism, but this book falls short. It seems to talk down to the very audience it purports to speak with. “Finding your lady space” and “don’t forget to have fun” are examples. While the garment industry strike that begins the book talks about the young women involved, many of the book’s other examples leave girls out of the equation. There is advice that includes self-care; an outlet to travel is another example. How many teenage girls can hop on a plane to escape in order to focus on themselves?
Many mothers will want to purchase this book in order to inspire their daughters to become more politically active. This reader would want the money better spent on The Diary of Anne Frank.
