What is Feminism? Why do we need It? And Other Big Questions by Bea Appleby

A fantastic book for children aged 9+ that explains why we should all be feminists.

Divided into sections such as Work and Money, Politics and Power, Media, Education, Family and Bodies, the book looks at the how feminism and the feminist movement, have affected each area in turn throughout history, and at the issues they are working to combat today. It also presents key figures in the fight for equal rights, from the Pankhursts to Germaine Greer and Malala Yousafzai, and looks at modern initiatives such as Emma Watson's He for She campaign.

People in the public eye put their opinions across, from Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney and Chief Executive of Girlguiding UK Julie Bentley, to rapper, comedian, actor and screenwriter Ben Bailey Smith aka Doc Brown.

A brilliant introduction for children to the movement, looking at the history of feminism, what it is today and its enormous relevance to young people and a vital tool for children in the process of figuring out the world and how it works.

Part of the groundbreaking and important 'And Other Questions' series, which offers balanced and considered views on the big issues we face in the world we live in today.

Other titles in the series include:
What is Humanism? How do you live without a god?
Who are Refugees and Migrants? What Makes People Leave their Homes?
What is Consent? Why is it important?
What is Gender? How does it define us?
