Praise

The Fire This Time will give younger readers company on the road to revolution, older readers the confidence there still is one, and all readers the reward of saying, ‘I didn’t know that!’ This landmark anthology belongs on every twenty-first century bookshelf.”
–Gloria Steinem

“This first-rate collection of writings by young activists represents the new wave of gender, race and class analysis for the twenty-first century.”–Manning Marable, Director, Center for Contemporary Black History, Columbia University

“This collection, by an extraordinary bunch of young people—mostly women, a few men—will awaken you and excite you. What they are writing and doing gives new life to the word “feminist.” If their ideas and actions take hold, we could have a different world.” –Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of The United States

“These feminists rock.”–Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation

“These essays don’t simply tell us about third wave feminism, they show us its breadth and impact. By the end of The Fire This Time you will have a better understanding of the activism that’s required to change the world.” –Jennifer Baumgardner & Amy Richards, coauthors, Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism and The Future

“These voices give us hope that the new wave of activists are not just invigorating the movement for future generations, but making significant gains in social justice at the same time. The Fire This Time is strong and optimistic; a powerful organizing tool that I’ll keep on my desk for years to come." –Sunita Mehta, editor, Women for Afghan Women

“A feast of original insights and radical acts by some of our generation’s sharpest writers and doers.” –William Upski Wimsatt, co-editor, How to Get Stupid White Men Out of Office
