display_description This "incredible addition to the feminist canon" brings together the most inspiring, creative, and courageous voices concerning modern women's issues (Jessica Valenti, editor of Yes Means Yes).

In this groundbreaking collection, more than fifty cutting-edge feminist writers—including Melissa Harris-Perry, Janet Mock, Sheila Heti, and Mia McKenzie—invite us to imagine a world of freedom and equality in which:

An abortion provider reinvents birth control . . .
The economy values domestic work . . .
A teenage rock band dreams up a new way to make music . . .
The Constitution is re-written with women's rights at the fore . . .
The standard for good sex is raised with a woman's pleasure in mind . . .

The Feminist Utopia Project challenges the status quo that accepts inequality and violence as a given, "offering playful, earnest, challenging, and hopeful versions of our collective future in the form of creative nonfiction, fiction, visual art, poetry, and more" (Library Journal).
