In The Everyday Feminist: The Key to Sustainable Social Impact-Driving Movements We Need Now More than Ever, Global Fund for Women President and CEO Latanya Mapp Frett shows how grassroots feminists are changing the world—and what we can all do to support them. The book includes exclusive interviews with well-known activists like Tarana Burke, founder of the “me too.” movement, alongside unsung women committed to transforming their communities and advancing movements—what she calls everyday feminists. She delivers a powerful exploration of the factors that make a feminist social movement impactful in its place and time.
In this practical primer for feminists, philanthropists and organizers, Latanya Mapp Frett introduces readers to women around the world who are creating change in their communities and gives guidance on how to better support their movements.MALALA YOUSAFZAI

Latanya, an everyday feminist herself, has provided us a practical and inspiring journey through her life and work, introducing us to other everyday feminists and activists along the way. Her voice is comforting in an urgent moment when women are taking up the helm to change the trajectory of history and solving many if not most of our social challenges. It is a radical idea, that if we, everyday feminists, connect, activate, and mobilize, we can meet the targets for carbon emissions, mitigate the impacts of climate, and adapt our communities to a new and bright future. This is the power of everyday feminists. And this is the power in the book. Grab a hot drink and enjoy dreaming the possible.MARY ROBINSON

The fact that women’s organizations, and their feminist and grassroots movements receive less than 1% of global philanthropic funding and that is cut in half for women and girls of color is completely maddening. The Everyday Feminist examines this mindset and helps us pivot to a world where supporting gender equality is critical and urgent. As a Foundation that invests in the power of women and girls, we look to Latanya for her guidance, wisdom and courage always. She has a gift for making accessible her vast experience around the globe in leading women shifting power. She has taught us to be brave and thoughtful funders of the everyday feminist.THE ISABEL ALLENDE FOUNDATION
