Description

Following in the tradition of Sara Ahmed (the originator of the concept “feminist killjoy”), Erin Wunker brings memoir, theory, literary criticism, pop culture, and feminist thinking together in this collection of essays that take up Ahmed’s project as a multi-faceted lens through which to read the world from a feminist point of view. 

In Notes from a Feminist Killjoy, Wunker discusses why we need feminism, and especially why we need the figure of the feminist killjoy, now. From the complicated practices of being a mother and a feminist, to building friendship amongst women as a community-building and community-sustaining project, to writing that addresses rape culture from the Canadian context and beyond, Notes from a Feminist Killjoy invites the reader into a conversation about gender, feminism, and living in our inequitable world.
