We were supposed to be in a ‘postfeminist’ age. But recently we’ve seen a resurgence of feminist campaigning among women (and some men). There’s a new brand of feminism: young, social media savvy, militant. But there’s also a new kind of backlash, driven by so-called fundamentalists and by increasingly overt misogyny. This book takes an international perspective on the new feminist movements.
