As loud, proud feminists, we are absolutely buzzing to have been included in the launch of Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies, the book of essays written by legendary women, taking the UK by storm.
Curated by journalist Scar Curtis, FDWP is a collection of 52 essays by well-known women from all walks on what the F word means to them so it’s funny, sad, inspiring… it gives us all the feels, so when we were asked to be involved, it was a big “fuck yeah!” from us.
Especially for the launch, we worked with our amazing friend Cat Lobo to design 2 pins inspired by the book: a cool AF Waterstones exclusive (the book nerds in us are still fangirling!) and our Full Time Feminist heart in the official @feminists colours. We’ve seen them all over Instagram, and you prob have too!
This week, we’re delighted to say that the Feminists Don’t Wear Pink book has landed on our site, where it’s available as part of a Feminists bundle with a Full Time Feminist pin! We’re so excited and proud to make FDWP the first book we sell on our site, and we hope it’s the first of a big ol’ pile of must-read tomes to be sold here. Feminism is close to our hearts, and since we can’t quite find the words ourselves to do this book justice, we’ll borrow from Scar Curtis:
This book will show the range of the young faces of feminism. It will speak to the contradictions and complications at the heart of the movement. It will speak to everyone.
This book will be a way for a group of unprecedentedly powerful young women to align themselves with feminism in a safe space.
Black feminism is different from white feminism is different from trans feminism is different from queer feminism. We need to hear stories from all these perspectives but these stories can’t just exist in a textbook.
This book will be intersectional feminism at its most collaborative and understandable. It will be an entryway into the movement and a bible for those already in it.
