Boss Babe Book Club June Selection: Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay

Hey darlings! It's time to pick this month's Boss Babe Book Club read.... 

This book as been on my shelf at home for literally months....but with so many amazing boss babe reads out there, it's hard to get through all of them in a timely manner. Heck, as much as I love reading about other boss babes, I have to make sure I still have time to BE ONE myself! Either way, I'm so excited to get reading this month's book with you all! Unlike most of our reads, this isn't a typical novel. Rather, it's a collection of essays all along a similar theme...boss babe(ness). That's totally a word, right?

According to Amazon, the book is about...

A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay.
In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.
