Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World was such a great read! The different ideas and concepts in this book were told in such a unique and fresh way. As a 20 year old I was afraid that this book would feel a little juvenile, being as how it is directed towards teenagers. But I found some parts that were particularly relevant to me. So that was a pleasant surprise. I commend Kelly Jensen for trying to teach the younger generation about feminism. Overall this was a great read and i would absolutely recommend this book to everyone!
