Publisher Description

A compelling story that will resonate with feminists who hope to change the world, one kind boy at a time

This book is a true love letter, not only to Jha's own son but also to all of our sons and to the parents--especially mothers--who raise them.”
—Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race and Mediocre

A beautifully written and deeply personal story of struggling, failing, and eventually succeeding at raising a feminist son, this empowering book offers much-needed insight and actionable advice. From teaching consent to counteracting problematic messages from the media, well-meaning family, and the culture at large, we have big work to do when it comes to our boys. 

Informed by the author's work as a professor of journalism specializing in social justice movements and social media, as well as by conversations with psychologists, experts, and other parents and boys, this book follows one mother's journey to raise a feminist son as a single immigrant woman of color in America. Through stories from her own life and wide-ranging research, Sonora Jha shows us all how to be better feminists and better teachers of the next generation of men in this electrifying tour de force.

* This audiobook edition includes a downloadable PDF of the Resources section of the book. 

"A beautiful hybrid of memoir, manifesto, instruction manual, and rumination on the power of story and possibilities of family."
—Rebecca Solnit, author of The Mother of All Questions

Sonora’s personal accounts, thoughtful research, pointed “to dos,” and additional resources provide a deeper understanding of intersectional feminism and outlines ways in which to open dialogue about the effects of patriarchal cultures with our growing children.
