The Feminism Book Review

    DK managed to pack A LOT of content into roughly 327 pages. Whether you’re new or old to feminism, or just want a factual account of the movements, this is a great read. I would recommend this for ages 12/13+ if reading independently. Broad concepts could be easily explained to a younger reader if they’re interested.

    I really like these series. They’re not US-only focused and they summarize big ideas and theories well.

    2.5 stars. When I picked up this book from the library on a whim, I had no idea how dense it was. I knew it covered a lot of time and ideas, but it read almost like an encyclopedia (albeit an easy to understand one). It was hard to encourage myself to read this, but it had some great information in it. I am especially glad that there were specific sections throughout the book that covered feminism in countries other than the US and UK. Learning more about all these feminist names that I've heard 2.5 stars. When I picked up this book from the library on a whim, I had no idea how dense it was.

Learning more about all these feminist names that I've heard was interesting, as I was able to put them in the larger context of the feminist movement, but this book was not particularly fun to read as it almost dragged on. Just keep that in mind, future readers!
