White feminism, written by Koa Beck. It is a “practice” and “state of mind” in which gender equality is a matter of personalized autonomy, perpetual self-optimization, and supremacy. Beck says, “All you need is a better morning routine, woman’s pencil skirt, this conference, that newsletter.” It’s a topic that remains devastatingly relevant. Her book is a call to action that looks onward to how we can and we must course correct, dismantling feminism that wasn’t made for us and building a more inclusive movement.
