My personal definition: Feminism is description of a just society where: men and women are treated with equal fairness and compassion; no traits or characteristics commonly associated with either men or women are thought to be inferior or superior merely because of their gender association; gender signifiers and differences are constructed and freely chosen; gender and affectional choices are joyfully made; and sex, childbearing and cohabitation are separated from archaic laws governing primogeniture and "marriage," and become a matter of preference, personal arrangement and, where necessary, contract.

I could have sworn there was a "Feminism for Beginners" in the famous series of book-length comics started by Rius, but neither Google nor Amazon turns it up.

Here's something amusing: Marx for Beginners from WalMart.com!

Jo

I'll do it. But I have to do some other stuff first.

elswhere

How about this?

But it's 13 years old. We definitely need a new one. I'd say J Russ but she might be a tad, um, brisk about it? And Jo has to finish unpacking first.

And argh! on your dad & cousin. I've had very similar conversations with my dad over the years. It feels like willful denseness bc. he's actually very smart. (and he reads my blog. But not your site, er, I don't think.)

Jo

I have written up a 10-page book proposal on "Talking to your Liberal Child About Feminism." I hesitate to post it, because I actually want to sell that series at some point.

me again

That's it! Jo's doing it. Never mind unpacking. *I* wanna buy that so I can get ideas for raising the consciousness of our girly girl.

Ide Cyan

Last year I began sketching out a shorter feminist aide-mémoire, based on Russ's _What Are We Fighting For_ and other works by other feminists. I wrote down eleven points. I'd been meaning to edit it into something that could be distributed as a pamphlet (although I hadn't collated an appropriate bibliography yet, other than in my head). It wouldn't be the same thing as "Feminism for Dummies", since it would presume, at the very least, an experience of sexist oppression validating the necessity for feminism, and not go into a lengthy *demonstration* of the need for feminism, but it could serve, I would hope, as a tool for remembering the radical core of the matter, and hence cutting through the bullshit.

I should get back to that...

Liz

That sounds so great! I can't wait to read it.

RJ

I want to hear the take on this from the lizzard woman herself. I want you to give us your answer: What is feminism? I am enthralled by the prospect...

David

I remember 'Feminism for Beginners' very clearly. I had a T-Shirt of the cover and one of my favourite memories in life was being offered 10 T-Shirts and dinner for it by a local man in Turkey who laughed so hard he nearly split himself. That made me realise the world is not so bad a place as the media would have us believe...

Hope

I'm glad people are talking about this! I googled "feminism for dummies" because I think we need one, which lead me here!

I think we need one very badly. I haven't found any kind of overview book, like an Introduction to Feminism book. Everything is so scattered and random, lots of good information is still intimadating. I think I'm going to write one this summer, but do a bit of the demonstration too, in order to reach out to a greater population of young people. Kind of a "Feminism in the 21st Century: Where we are and where we are going". P.S. I've claimed that title!

e

well, well, well prescient as usual, badger, huh? did this ever go anywhere?

lizthefair

I certainly haven't written a book about the subject, but with a similar goal in mind I created a Squidoo Lens as a place to collect good resources for people just starting out in Feminism. The link is http://www.squidoo.com/discoveringfeminism/ and I'm always looking for more content, so if you have anything to add let me know or post it on the site.
