Analysing a wide range of online communities and subcultures, Collapse Feminism shows how an unprecedented backlash against women is being orchestrated online.
Covering everything from the reactionary politics of the “manosphere” to hookup culture, traditional feminity, the politics of sexual liberation and liberal-friendly lifestyle content, Collapse Feminism shows how the future of feminism is being determined in these online spaces, and what this means for women in the twenty-first century.
As conservative and anti-feminist political groups grow in power and popularity online and in the real world, it is urgent that we collectively reject political ideas that harm people of all genders, and instead work to create a freer, fairer and more creative future for all.
