NYU Press Soft­cover $28 (256pp) 978-1-4798-8409-4 Com­pre­hen­sive and schol­arly, Find­ing Fem­i­nism is best for the sea­soned mil­len­nial fem­i­nist or for the new one truly com­mit­ted to the cause.

Ali­son Dahl Cross­ley’s Find­ing Fem­i­nism: Mil­len­nial Ac­tivists and the Un­fin­ished Gen­der Rev­o­lu­tion is an in-depth look at con­tem­po­rary fem­i­nism, par­tic­u­larly as it is en­gaged by mil­len­ni­als.

Start­ing with a brief look at some of the facets that make up mod­ern fem­i­nism, the book delves into what fem­i­nism is to mil­len­ni­als—and that could de­pend on fac­tors such as race, class, or ed­u­ca­tion. A young black woman may not feel the con­nec­tion to main­stream fem­i­nism that a young white woman does. Ac­knowl­edg­ing dif­fer­ences like that, Cross­ley presents sub­groups of fem­i­nism and vari­a­tions in each.

Through­out the text, dif­fer­ent sec­tions fo­cus on as­pects that af­fect fem­i­nism, such as rep­re­sen­ta­tion, or­ga­ni­za­tions, and iden­tity. They are each in­cred­i­bly thor­ough. In­ter­views add au­then­tic­ity to the work. The dif­fer­ences and sim­i­lar­i­ties
