Disclaimer: I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you to Gayle E. Pitman, PhD., Netgalley, and Magination Press for this free copy. All quotes in this review are taken from the Advanced Reader Copy and may change in final publication.
I usually don’t read nonfiction novels, but I wanted to read this one based on the subject matter. I was curious to see how Dr. Pitman would give us the ABCs of feminism and how she would present it without it being too basic. It was actually really great, and this is a book that I would totally keep on hand. This actually reminds me that I should be getting a copy very soon.
In the introduction, Dr. Pitman did explain that there may have been some words that didn’t seem to match with the public idea of feminism, but she really showed otherwise through her commentary with each word. I liked how she did that, and I learned a lot of different things that I didn’t think about before, and was also able to dive deeper into certain topics, events, people, etc. that Dr. Pitman mentioned after her brief overviews. I felt like I was doing a research project that I actually enjoyed for once!
This is a pretty short review since there really isn’t much I could say without divulging the contents of the book too much, but all in all, I thought it was a great nonfiction novel for both YA and NA readers to dip their toes a little more into the world of feminism and what exactly it means.
