"Manifesta is a breath of fresh air. At last, Gen X takes on feminism and revamps a feminist manifesto for a new era. A jolt, a resource, a timeline, and a challenge, Manifesta is a readable, well-informed, and necessary to any young woman--or man--who craves gender equality." --Naomi Wolf

"[The authors] have sorted out the fruits of this wave of feminism--intended and unintended, media mess and truth--for a new generation. With wit and honesty, Manifesta shows us the building blocks of the future of this longest revolution." --Gloria Steinem

"Great news from the front--feminism lives! Bold, independent, generous, and cautionary, Manifesta leaves no doubt that for a new generation of women the F-word is not only speakable but shoutable and singable. To learn the tune and catch the beat, read this book." --Alix Kates Shulman

"Manifesta is another step toward the empowerment of women. If caring about women matters, this book matters." --Andrea Dworkin

"Manifesta was the inspiration for my movie The Itty Bitty Titty Committee. This brilliant book continues to inspire me with its fierce call to justice. A must read for anyone wanting to understand our history and a call to arms for the fights ahead!" --Jamie Babbit, director, But I'm a Cheerleader

"Manifesta was my bible in college--and beyond. I carried it with me everywhere." --Katie Cappiello, writer/creator, SLUT: The Play and the Netflix series Grand Army

"Manifesta changed my life." --Nancy Redd, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author

"Bold feminist literature then and just as relevant now. An inspiration for a new generation of social justice activists. With a voice that is smart and relatable, this book is fuel for the revolution as we persevere in the fight for equality 20 years later." --Kimberly Culmone, Senior Vice President, Design Barbie and Fashion Dolls

"A reasoned and passionate call to action and an exciting how-to guide for both burgeoning and seasoned Third Wave feminists." --Eleanor J. Bader, Library Journal
