This thought-provoking book is written by prominent feminist scholars from around the world. It is engaging and accessible, distilling the highest level of knowledge into fascinating but concise entries. This Is Not A Feminism Textbook offers a clear, straightforward overview of key feminist debates and concerns ranging from motherhood, home, work and family to media, technology, and medicine. 
This book is a must-read for everyone who is curious about the sex/gender distinction, and the relation between gender and other aspects of identity; and it tackles plenty more questions along the way. Are smart homes really smart? Will technology save the world? What does class have to do with feminism? And what does "intersectionality" actually mean? 
The work of feminism to help create a more just and equal society is not yet done. This book provides a roadmap to inspire each and every reader to continue exploring, thinking about, discussing, and "doing" feminism. 

Contributors include Celia Roberts, Amber Jamilla Musser, Simidele Dosekun, Sara R. Farris, Chiara Pellegrini, Cynthia Barounis, Suzanne Leonard, Yolande Strengers, and Heather Berg.
