New Intersectional Feminist Book Features Roxane Gay, Amandla Stenberg

When it comes to feminism moving forward, it has to be intersectional.

'Why?' you may ask. Simple: the world is filled with far too many women of colour, with various sexual orientations and different beliefs for it to be any other way, Kelly Jensen, editor of Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World, recently told Teen Vogue.

"The only way you can be truly feminist is by embracing that's how our world looks and behaves."

The book, which includes 44 contributors, features essays from actress Amandla Stenberg, author Roxane Gay, as well as transgender writer Constance Augusta Zaber, all of whom have been vocal about their feminist views.

Topics covered range from makeup, to female genital mutilation, male feminism and everything in between, all from diverse perspectives.

The anthology can truly come at no better time, seeing as on Saturday, Jan. 21, more than three million women protested across the U.S. in solidarity with the Women's March on Washington, with many other rallies taking place around the world.

But while some saw the movement as progressive, other activists begged to differ.

Sex educator Ericka Hart took to the stage at the Philadelphia march to call out the lack of intersectionality at the protest, and many Twitter users seemed to agree as well. Proving that while the feminist movement could now be considered mainstream, it's not totally inclusive of all women just yet.

If you're itching to get your hands on this new book, the good news is you don't have to wait. Here We Are: Feminism for the Real World was released today.
