How to Raise a Feminist: Bringing Up Kids with the Confidence to Change the World

by Allison Vale and Victoria Ralfs
£12.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (Robinson) (2017)

How to Raise a Feminist: Bringing Up Kids with the Confidence to Change the World by Allison Vale and Victoria Ralfs A lively and irreverent celebration of a new wave of non-combative, arms-wide-open feminism-for-all.
 
'We are all equally fascinating, equally valuable, equally capable of altruism, equally able to change the world for the better. That's feminism, isn't it? And it's what every parent wants for their kids ... every parent that's not a d*ck, that is.'
 
Growing up in the '70s, neither Allison Vale nor Victoria Ralfs reckoned they needed feminism. But years of settling for the smallest chops at the dinner table, getting battered in British Bulldog, and negotiating the flasher down the lane, left them feeling uneasy: had feminism been the missing link?
 
In How to Raise a Feminist, they join forces as mothers, educators, story-tellers and women, to tell the riotous story of how they came to put feminism at the core of their parenting.
 
Real feminism is:
 
· NOT angry or man-hating
· common sense
· the way to raise happily flawed, robust sons and daughters
 
Real parenting is:
 
. mostly without a script
. often a bit terrifying
. entirely amazing
 
How to Raise a Feminist is the ideal read for anyone, anywhere, unnerved by the pressure to be perfect; a 'good enough' guide to raising your children into gloriously gutsy, empathetic, likeable young people, irrespective of their gender.
