About this book:

Many of our experiences are filtered through our bodies – norms, myths, and cultural standards shape the way that we feel about our bodies and how we see ourselves. Feminism says these rules are bullshit.
This collection take us from an examination of skin and hair, to an exploration of pleasure, sex, and safety. They explore our bodies and health. They examine the way that institutions can trap us and how we can trap ourselves. It remind us that feminism is dynamic, open, and ever relevant.
