Can Your Conversations Change the World?

Orca Book Publishers | PopActivism


Being a feminist can mean different things to different people, but one thing it always includes is the belief in equality and human rights. Whether you are talking with one close friend or hanging out with a group of classmates, it matters what you say and how you say it. Not everyone is going to agree with your opinions, especially when you are talking about social justice issues. Can Your Conversations Change the World? provides insight into the origins and history of feminism, how it plays out on the global stage and what it means to be a young feminist and activist today.

---

"As in Can You Smartphone Change the World? and Can Your Outfit Change the World?, the information presented here is engaging, conversational, and encourages reflection...Highly Recommended."

---

"The book's focus on the importance of conversation is a particularly admirable choice for this huge topic…This is an accessible book for young girls and it is armed with enough concrete information to begin this important conversation."

---

"A good jumping-off point for budding feminists searching for an upbeat place to start. Idealistic and hopeful."
