*"Pitman does an excellent job of making complex topics understandable and relatable while providing tips on actions people can take to bring more equality to the world. A great purchase for both public and high school libraries." --School Library Journal Starred Review

"The author, Gayle E. Pitman, PhD, a professor of psychology and women's studies at Sacramento City College, offers fascinating ways to frame subjects that one might not normally associate with feminism, including knitting and Easy Bake Ovens. Many of the other concepts highlight key aspects of feminism including awareness about violence against women and discussion of concepts like intersectionality and conformity. This book could be particularly valuable to program officers and grantees looking for gender equality content to blend into a curriculum of empowerment for all young people. Boys as well as girls would benefit from exploring the concepts introduced in the book, and carrying out the creative and mind-expanding exercises." --Philanthropy Women

"Exceptionally 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation, making it an ideal and highly recommended addition to high school, community, and academic library Feminism & Women's Studies collections." --Midwest Book Review

"This is a must-read book for any young person who wants to learn about feminism, take action to educate themselves, and be the best feminist they can be. This should be required reading in our schools. It makes history interesting and gives us hope for our future in these especially troubling times." --Kids' Book Buzz
