An incredible, thought-provoking coming-of-age memoir studded
with both painful and triumphant revelations. Overvoll is
living proof that people can change, that experiences and relationships
shape progress, and that questioning the status quo is
crucial to growth.

Finding Feminism is captivating from cover to cover. Regardless of
my own religious background, I felt as though this story was my
own. It's raw, it's real, it's emotional. This book is a great read for
anyone looking for how to grow and muster the strength it can
take to move on.
--Kelly Kawa, Program Manager, Thinkful

As a woman, Finding Feminism hit close to home. It's beautifully
written and tells the powerful story of Rachel taking back the
power that the church, men, and her eating disorder had taken
from her. The book brought tears to my eyes because my own
personal experiences are so similar and because it shows the true
strength of this woman. Rachel's memoir will leave you feeling
empowered and in awe of the strength of all women.
--Julia Parzyck, FitFatAndAllThat and Eating Recovery Coach

Finding Feminism is an important story told boldly and tenderly
through the voice of Rachel Overvoll who fought against an
oppressive culture to find herself. Rachel's story is our story.
--Carly Gelsinger, Author of Once You Go In

Rachel Overvoll's memoir captivated me, making me feel like
I was living right alongside her on her journey to break out of
female oppression. Rachel's story will hit home no matter how
liberated you think you are. An amazing story and a must read!
--Kelly Rice, Nutritionist

How delightful that a memoir exploring a seemingly extreme
upbringing can powerfully convey universal struggles of womanhood.
By immersing us in the insular world of purity balls, purity
rings, and amiably rifle-holding fathers, Overvoll illuminates the
larger ways in which our culture impacts each woman's sense of
self. Overvoll's voice--vulnerable yet empowered--is intensely
relatable. Readers will find comfort, courage, and insight in this
