"Wildly creative." --Kirkus

"A joyful cacophony of voices offering playful, earnest, challenging, and hopeful versions of our collective future in the form of creative nonfiction, fiction, visual art, poetry, and more." --Library Journal

"The Feminist Utopia Project is an incredible addition to the feminist canon. With contributions from some of the most important voices in gender justice, this book looks to the future with optimism, strength, and intelligence. Your feminist library is not complete without it." --Jessica Valenti, editor of Yes Means Yes

"The collection's diverse visions and the applause-worthy, rallying intro prove that we might not have to wait for these dreams to become real."--BUST

"The imaginative and exhilarating artwork, stories, and essays here are smart, funny, moving, significant--and inspire hope for what might be." --T Cooper, author of Changers

"Brodsky and Nalebuff have captured the vibrancy that is currently infusing a new generation of feminists, while challenging the limitations still informed by politics and history." --Booklist

"This remarkable collection of essays, stories, and artwork showcases multiple ways in which feminists have and continue to struggle for equality and a just society. Brodsky and Nalebuff have created a collection of highly readable interpretations of feminist utopias as they emerge from a wide array of perspectives, including women's political standpoints, their ethnic and racial situations, sexual preferences, and class positions. Taken together these brilliant and beautifully crafted essays signal new and radical directions in feminism. The Feminist Utopia Project is essential reading for anyone who has ever imagined a better world." --Crystal N. Feimster, author of Southern Horrors: Women and the Politics of Rape and Lynching
