Jessa Crispin | Why I Am Not a Feminist

Jessa Crispin discusses her incendiary new book ‘Why I Am Not A Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto.’

In ‘Why I Am Not A Feminist,’ writer and editor Jessa Crispin poses a radical new critique of contemporary feminism. Somewhere along the way, she argues, the movement for female liberation sacrificed meaning for acceptance, and left us with a banal, polite, ineffectual pose that barely challenges the status quo. What can we do to redeem the feminist cause?

Jessa discusses her work with Rachel Dry, editor of the New York Times Sunday Review section.
