The power of structural violence is that it tries to silence us. The power of feminism is that it gives us a voice. So much of our life experience is filtered through our bodies – norms, myths, and cultural standards continue to shape the way that we and the world feel about our bodies and how we see ourselves.
Feminism says these rules are bullshit. Our bodies can be tools to conform or a way to resist. Feminism is necessary to help us learn and unlearn things about ourselves and the world we live in. Feminism is for all of us, for every single body.
This collection take us from an examination of skin and hair, to an exploration of pleasure, sex, and safety. They explore the way our bodies change, our health, and how we become who we are. They examine the way that institutions can trap us, how we can trap ourselves, and the importance of our hearts in all of this.

And what she finds is some very odd behaviour by the police sent to “keep the peace” on campus. Police sent by Noné, South Africa's President and Most Impressive Leader, who wants no trouble from pesky students while she plans the launch of her zoo of creatures with extraordinary abilities.
One thing is certain: If what Thuli has seen is true, they have only seven days to change the future …
This book has haiku that describe what it is really like to work in retail. Jen Thorpe wrote these haiku in her head while smiling at customers who were behaving badly in the book store she worked in. If you work in retail, you might find yourself relating to these haiku of frustration.
