"I had learned about the male gaze in women’s studies classes, but knew no way to dig it out of me," writes Febos. This books is for feminists who are looking back at their own girlhoods and wondering when and why they began to see their body through others' eyes, where along the way their voices got smaller and their "no"s became diluted or disappeared altogether. This was a book I didn't know I needed until I found it. -Ruth, Burlington
