Women in Saudi Arabia are now allowed to drive; we’re starting to see women of all sizes in our magazines; and historic sexual abuse cases are making headlines and causing change. Do we still need feminism? What does it mean to be a feminist anyway?

In this unique, illustrated introduction, Cathia Jenainati and Judy Groves help us to explore these questions, on a tour of the history of conscious struggle against sexist oppression – from 16th-century challenges to the idea of women as weak and irrational to 19th- and 20th-century ‘waves’ of feminism and suffrage movements, to present-day conversations about MeToo, black feminism, and women’s rights in the Middle East. Culture, critical theory and popular action combine to give us a picture of the challenges faced and victories secured in improving women’s rights and changing attitudes towards gender.

As we’ll see, there is no one, singular feminism, but Feminism: A Graphic Guide will help us to engage with the heated debates that still take place and the work still to be done.
