Manifesta [10th Anniversary Edition]

Young Women, Feminism, and the Future


In the year 2000, girl culture was clearly ascendant. From Lilith Fair to Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the WNBA, it seemed that female pride was the order of the day. Yet feminism was also at a crossroads; "girl power" feminists were obsessed with personal empowerment at the expense of politics, while political institutions such as Ms. and NOW had lost their ability to speak to a new generation. In Manifesta, Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards brilliantly revealed the snags in each feminist hub, all the while proving that these snags had not imperiled the future of the feminist cause. The book went on to inspire a new generation of female readers, and has become a classic of contemporary feminist literature.

Disney Songs for Banjo

(Banjo). A fun collection of 25 Disney favorites arranged for 5-string banjo, including: Baby Mine * The Ballad of Davy Crockett * The Bare Necessities * Be Our Guest * Beauty and the Beast * Bella Notte (This Is the Night) * Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo (The Magic Song) * Chim Chim Cher-ee * Colors of the Wind * Cruella De Vil * Give a Little Whistle *…

In the decade since Manifesta was published, the world has changed in ways both promising and disheartening for the feminist cause. Despite major strides forward, the wage gap remains vast; many feminist publications have died; shame around abortion has lingered and '90s-style anti-abortion terrorism has reemerged. Many of the points first raised so bravely in Manifesta remain urgent—namely, why it's still critical for today's young women to focus on gender. This tenth anniversary edition of Manifesta, complete with updated back matter, commentary from the authors, and a provocative new preface, shows why the issues first raised by Baumgardner and Richards remain as timely as ever.
