Summary Young women today have a bad reputation, and for good reason: They're sexting their classmates, they spend more time on FaceBook than they do in class, and their appetite for material possessions and reality TV is matched only by their overwhelming apathy about important social and political issues. Right? Wrong. FBomb blog creator Julie Zeilinger debunks these (and other) myths about modern youth in A Little F'd Up, the first book about feminism for young women in their teens and twenties to actually be written by one of their peers. In this accessible handbook, Zeilinger takes a critical, honest, and humorous look at where young feminists are as a generation, and where they're going, and she does so from the perspective of someone who's in the trenches right alongside her readers. Fun, funny, and engaging, A Little F'd Up is a must-read for the growing number of intelligent, informed young women out there who are ready to start finding their voice, and changing the world
