A love story that will resonate with feminists who hope to change the world, one kind boy at a time
From teaching consent to counteracting problematic messages from the media, well-meaning family, and the culture at large, we've got big work to do when it comes to our boys. This empowering book offers much-needed insight and actionable advice. It's also a beautifully written and deeply personal story of struggling, failing, and eventually succeeding at raising a feminist son.
Informed by the author's work as a professor of journalism specializing in social justice movements and social media, as well as by conversations with psychologists, experts, and other parents and boys, this book follows one mother's journey to raise a feminist son as a single immigrant woman of color in America. Through stories from her own life and wide-ranging research, Sonora Jha shows us all how to be better feminists and better teachers of the next generation of men in this electrifying tour de force.
Each chapter concludes with a bulleted section of takeaways, and the book ends with an annotated bibliography of reading and watching recommendations for adults and children.
