Legally Reading: Bad Feminist: Essays by Roxane Gay

Bad Feminist: Essays is a 2014 collection of essays by cultural critic, novelist and professor Roxane Gay. Bad Feminist explores being a feminist while loving things that could seem at odds with feminist ideology. Gay's essays engage pop culture and her personal experiences, covering topics such as the Sweet Valley High series,  Django Unchained, and Gay's own upbringing as a Haitian-American.
