Feminism For The Clumsy
Original Title: Feminismo para torpes
Author: Nerea Pérez de las Heras
Being a conscious feminist is not like looking at the world through a purple filter. It’s taking off your dirty, scratched and ill-fitted glasses, which are old fashioned and horrendous, and which someone put on you when you were young, and looking at things for what they really are. I took mine off when I was working for a fashion magazine and shortly after I began my first steps as a feminist comedian. This is a story that takes you through meetings of activists who are demonstrating, high powered women who meet and drink pink sparkling water, the 8th of March movement, resistance to change, haters, discovery of everything that may appear to be feminist but is not. Feminism For The Clumsy is built on the author’s own experiences and those of her generation, and it works like a ‘mental toolbox’ to insist on the idea that ‘without feminism there is no democracy, no justice, no evolution, possible’.
