Reclaiming the F Word

Feminism Today

Kristin Aune and Catherine Redfern


'Reclaiming the F Word is a positive, upbeat survey of the contemporary fight for women's rights. Feminism never went away, but right now it's more essential than ever. Give a copy of this book to every teenager in your life.' - Laurie Penny

'A lucid and lively examination of the state of contemporary feminism from two women who really know what they're talking about. Most importantly, at a time when it's easy to feel down-hearted about the state we're in, this book is full of hope.' - Libby Brooks, deputy comment editor, Guardian

'If you thought feminism was dead or drawing its pension, think again. Savvy, witty and politically passionate, Reclaiming the F Word explains what today’s feminists want, and describes what they are doing to make it happen. Whether or not you actually call yourself a feminist, if you care about gender equality and justice you will want to read this book.' - Deborah Cameron, author of The Myth of Mars and Venus

'The most wide-ranging, the most globally-oriented and in many respects the most radical [new feminist release ... Practical, positive, and refreshingly free from navel-gazing. I can’t put it any better than the prologue - ‘it’s optimistic, rolling-up-your-sleeves-and-getting-things-done feminism’’ - Delilah Campbell, Trouble and Strife

'There has never been a better, more exciting time to be a feminist. This book shows the positive impact of feminism on our daily lives. Reclaiming The F Word should be every woman's - and many men's - bedside companion.' - Zoe Margolis, aka Abby Lee, author of Girl With A One Track Mind

'Anyone wanting to know what it means to be a feminist: read this book. You are sure to be inspired by how necessary feminism remains both for changing societies and liberating ourselves.' - Amy Richards, author of "Manifesta" and "Opting In"

'Redfern and Aune have arrived with their arms full of ideas, encouragement and action for human beings who think that it would be a blooming good idea if everyone was treated equally regardless of their gender ... Redfern and Aune’s contribution on women’s political involvement provides a robust and important contribution to this rejuvenated feminist debate ... [a] must-have DIY guide to feminist action' - Anthea McTeirnan, The Irish Times
