Rich, an activist and assistant advocacy director for the New York Civil Liberties Union, presents an inspiring and practical handbook for meaningful resistance. Rich lays the groundwork for grassroots organizing, first establishing a common language with readers and exploring topics such as power, privilege, inequity, intersectionality, and patriarchy. There are a lot of reasons for girls and women to be mad, she suggests, using the examples of gender stereotypes, the gender wage gap, and societal hypersexualization of girls. Rich encourages readers to home in on the causes that most inspire them to act, and to set clear goals. She details specific steps readers can take to plan rallies, circulate petitions, and raise community awareness about pertinent issues. This pertinent and bold guide featuring Sagramola's warm illustrations rendered in blue and orange tones is likely to become a go-to resource for young activists. Ages 14 up.
