whoneedsfeminism:

I need feminism because when I was sexually harassed in front of my brother, he said it was MY FAULT for wearing a shirt that you could see a little bit of my BACK in. The rest of it was like a normal T-shirt. I was wearing long jeans to boot.

Roxane Gay, "Theses on the Feminist Novel", Dissent Magazine Fall 2014 (via yeahwriters)

"A feminist novel, then, is one that not only deals explicitly with the stories and thereby the lives of women; it is also a novel that illuminates some aspect of the female condition and/or offers some kind of imperative for change and/or makes a bold or unapologetic political statement in the best interests of women."
