Women, Sex, Power, and How to Stop Letting the System Screw Us AllBook - 2017
Jaclyn Friedman sparks a culture-wide rethink about what's accepted as normal when it comes to women's sexuality, urging us all to try for something better. She reveals that the anxiety and fear women in our country feel around issues of their sexuality are not, in fact, their fault, but instead are side effects of our toxic culture. Dubbed the "era of fauxpowerment," that culture gives women the illusion of sexual power, with no actual power to support it. Exploring where media, religion, politics, and education overlap with feminist issues, Unscrewed breaks down the causes and signs of fauxpowerment, then gives readers tools to take it on themselves.
