Bad Feminist: Essays Free Audiobook Download by Roxane Gay

Bad Feminist: Essays is a collection of essays by Roxane Gay, mostly written in the form of a voice that is funny, raw, and honest. Her words are witty and poignant, making you laugh and cry. It's a powerful collection that challenges everything we thought we knew about feminism.

["Bahni Turpin's" voice is warm and comforting even when she critiques herself.] In a culture where feminism is considered unfashionable, Bahni Turpin found feminism to be a personal necessity. She says that the imperative to write was always there, but her full transition into Bad Feminist only happened after she found her voice.

Growing up in small-town Mississippi, Roxane Gay was taught to cover up her body, not to speak about her feelings, and that it was wrong for her to have desires. She writes about the specific ways this type of conditioning affected her life, from being forced into sex she didn't want to be having with someone older than her to having friends at school who told her she wasn't allowed to read books “for a woman” because they were too challenging. She also tells readers how they can take charge of their own lives, learn how the patriarchy hurts them, and what it looks like when women stand up for themselves.

The book is an autobiography of Roxane Gay's life as a woman who has faced sexism and is trying to be feminist. It begins by telling the reader about Gay's mother's death in 2001 while she was still an infant, which affects her and her family in many ways. The rest of the book discusses the difficulty that Gay has faced with being a woman.
