Revolution Z

Author: Giulia Blasi

For Generation Z (those born between 1995 -2010) feminism is an archaic contraption like a Nokia phone. Is it still useful? After her bestselling Manual for Revolutionary Girls, for readers of all ages, Giulia Blasi addresses teenagers who want to clarify their ideas on complicated and intimate issues ranging from equal (or unequal) relationships, communication, to gender identity. She dispels all doubt that patriarchy has far from disappeared from our society (why don’t we aim to eliminate it by 2030, like plastics from the sea?) and that feminism is now, more than ever, an important, effective, and enlightening movement.

Understanding the struggle of those who fought for progress prepares us all for the challenges of this exhausting rite of passage to adulthood in which parents, relatives and teachers often end up criticizing rather than instructing.  This new book aims to open dialogue and offer valuable insights into the traps and prejudices of generational ideas on: identity, the use and misuse of social media, the imperative of beauty, toxic relationships.  The truth is that feminism is revolutionary, and it is up to today’s teenagers to fight it.
