An accessible overview of the womens movement, including timelines, suggested reading and numerous ways for young people to get active and make a difference. -- "Newsday," Read-worthy How-to Book of the Week "With her guide addressed to a generation of girls who have grown up 'denying feminism but embracing its rewards, ' the youngest woman ever elected president of the California chapter of NOW seeks to make feminism palatable for a generation put off by outmoded images of unshaven legs and burning bras. . . . This is a thorough, thought-provoking introduction." -- "Publishers Weekly" ...Seely dispels the notion that there are secrets to successful organizing by creating a step by step, compelling manual that challenges even the cynical. -- "Feminist Review" The so-called third wave -- the newest generation involved in the women's movement -- faces an uphill battle in getting people to listen up, partly because of knee-jerk negative reactions to the f-word: feminist. In fact, says Seely, I'm not a feminist, but . . . has become a common qualifier among young people who support the principles of equality but don't want to be associated with words like militant or butch. Seely addresses this stumbling block and many others, including discord within the movement due to racial and generational differences. She provides an accessible overview of the women's movement, including timelines, suggested reading and numerous ways for young people to get active and make a difference. -- "Newsday" (How-To Book of the Week) A primer on thewomens movement that brims with reading and film lists, web resources, and worthy reminders. . . . Textbook-y in the best way. . . . Several appendices give practical adviceIts the perfect gift for the burgeoning activist in your life. -- "Bitch" Megan Seely is a feminist force of nature. Her book is an intelligent, volcanic eruption of facts and analysis on the status of women and girls today. It's a compelling call to take action for equality that made me feel exactly as I did thirty years ago when I first became a feminist." -- Helen Grieco, Executive Director, California National Organization for Women Fight Like a Girl is a much-needed primer and call to action for the next generation of feminist activists. In this regressive cultural climate, it's more important than ever to speak loudly and proudly about the work we're doing and what still needs to be done. -- Lisa Jervis, co-founder and publisher of "Bitch" An amazing and comprehensive resource. . . . Serving as both an introduction to feminism and a blueprint for whats next for the movement, Fight Like a Girl is simply invaluable. -- "Bay Windows" "Seely, the youngest elected president of California's chapter of the National Organization for Women, combines her own story of third-wave feminism with an overview of the feminist movement and words to guide others. Third-wave feminists are aware of both the victories won by earlier feminists and the problems of class, race, sexual orientation, and internationalism that must still be overcome. This book weaves a deep respect for the foremothers with commonsense discussion of current obstacles and suggestions for direct action, resulting in awork that reminds us of what too many activists forget-every progressive movement has a long history, few organizing tricks are new, and problems must be understood before they can be solved. Seely includes booklists, time lines, web sites, and how-to tips that will help readers over the bridge from her insights to real world activism. For midsize to larger public libraries, academic libraries, and all feminist collections." -- "Library Journal" Serving as both an introduction to feminism and a blueprint for whats next for the movement, Fight like a girl is simply invaluable. -- "Bay Windows" "Want to know what it means to be a feminist
