The coolest kids of all are the ones who aren’t afraid to show their true colours: those are the women of Turbo Chicks: Talking Young Feminists (Sumach Press). Anyone who thinks that feminism is dead or that young people are apathetic should read this book—proof that there is a lot more to girl power than the Spice Girls. In the pages of Turbo Chicks, young women explain why they became feminists, how that does or does not define them and how girls can raise a little heck. My favourite articles include an academic investigation of “the keeper” menstrual device, a tale of an Easter ritual gone wrong in the Czech Republic and an ode to lipstick. Some of the writing is too Angry Young Goddess for me, but most of the articles are satisfying peeks into the consciousness of a generation of women much ignored. My only real objection is that the book is completely orchestrated by members of the Women’s Studies Department at York University, which adds an avoidable skew to the shape of the work.
