Jessica Valenti has been leading the national conversation on gender and politics for more than a decade. In Sex Object, a darkly funny and bracing memoir, she explores the toll that sexism takes, from the everyday to the existential. Coming of age in a culture that demands women be small, quiet, and compliant, Lindy West quickly discovered that she was anything but, and her memoir Shrill is an uproarious feminist rallying cry. Samantha Irby joins in for a raucous examination of feminism today.
