Bad Feminist—a term she uses for herself—is her collection of personal essays backed up with external sources about the daily conflicts that women encounter being feminists in our complicated, culture-consuming world. She approaches each topic with a healthy balance of humor and criticism, acknowledging the messy, flawed nature of trying to live by an ever-changing set of feminist principles.

Each subsequent character is so incredibly well developed that closing their chapter and leaving them behind hurts a little every time. The story focuses on the bond between two talented and creative women who meet in college and become successful collaborators as adults.
