A book for all teens — no matter what gender you are — about feminism: what it is, what it means, and how to do it...from A to Z.Written by the author of the Stonewall Award-winning book, This Day in June, Feminism From A to Z is an alphabetical primer on feminism for teen girls. Each chapter examines a topic that offers call-to-action exercises incorporated into each lesson. Includes an introduction to readers on how to use the book and an alphabetical list of ways to take feminist action.
From the introduction:
So many girls and women don’t have easy access to the tools of feminism. In fact, if we learn about feminism at all, it probably won’t be until after we finish high school. And that is a shame. Imagine how different life would be if, at the age of 13 and suddenly faced with casual sexism for the first time, you had a strong grasp of feminist principles and a hefty feminist toolbox at your fingertips? Let’s be more specific. Here are some situations where feminism can be really helpful:
- If you’ve ever felt “fat.”
- If you’ve ever been pressured to do something you didn’t want to do, or that went against your values.
- If you’ve ever been afraid to speak up.
- If you’ve ever been bullied—or been a bully.
- If your confidence has ever felt shaky.
- If you’ve ever felt unwelcome because of who you are.

*"Pitman does an excellent job of making complex topics understandable and relatable while providing tips on actions people can take to bring more equality to the world. A great purchase for both public and high school libraries." --School Library Journal Starred Review
"The author, Gayle E. Pitman, PhD, a professor of psychology and women's studies at Sacramento City College, offers fascinating ways to frame subjects that one might not normally associate with feminism, including knitting and Easy Bake Ovens. Many of the other concepts highlight key aspects of feminism including awareness about violence against women and discussion of concepts like intersectionality and conformity. This book could be particularly valuable to program officers and grantees looking for gender equality content to blend into a curriculum of empowerment for all young people. Boys as well as girls would benefit from exploring the concepts introduced in the book, and carrying out the creative and mind-expanding exercises." --Philanthropy Women
"Exceptionally 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation, making it an ideal and highly recommended addition to high school, community, and academic library Feminism & Women's Studies collections." --Midwest Book Review
"This is a must-read book for any young person who wants to learn about feminism, take action to educate themselves, and be the best feminist they can be. This should be required reading in our schools. It makes history interesting and gives us hope for our future in these especially troubling times." --Kids' Book Buzz--This text refers to the paperback edition.
