UnscrewedDownloadable Audiobook - 2017
What bestselling authors like Sheryl Sandberg and Brigid Schulte have done for women's work lives, Jaclyn Friedman does here for women's sexuality: spark a culture-wide rethink about what's accepted as normal, urging us all to try for something better. Not only that but she does it with warmth, irreverence, and candor reminiscent of Roxane Gay in Bad Feminist and the fiery conviction of her own co-edited anthology Yes Means Yes! In Unscrewed , Friedman reveals that the anxiety and fear that women in our country feel around issues of their sexuality are not, in fact, their fault, but instead are side effects of our toxic culture. Dubbed the "era of fauxpowerment," that culture gives women the illusion of sexual power, with no actual power to support it. Exploring where media, religion, politics, and education overlap with feminist issues, Unscrewed breaks down the causes and signs of fauxpowerment, then gives readers tools to take it on themselves.
