Feminism: A very short introduction by Margaret Walters

Feminism has been a burning topic of conversation in our long drives. Body image issues, my occasional (?) obsessions with food and need to exercise, Sheryl’s ‘Lean In’ book, the Womens Hour Power List 2016 (and Beyonce’s inclusion in that). They are all on the table and have at times prompted Andy to tell me that he’s more of a feminist than I am. So I decided to learn more about this and build my arguments.

This is the perfect place to start. A short (very short) history of the feminist movement starting in the 1700s and running up to the 1980s. A lot of food for thought, further books to read and notes made. A must
