A fabulous read for twentysomethings and college students. This book emphasizes the importance of electoral politics as a vehicle for improving the lives of women. A relevant, fast-paced, interesting overview of contemporary 'feminist' issues that affect young women.

The F Word is a fierce book and great to read. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about feminism and the issues. Row-Finkbeiner does a great job explaining feminism. She also has great resources throughout the book for political action.
