A smart, contemporary, stylish, and practical handbook for aspiring teen girl activists who are mad as hell about the way the world is going and aren't gonna take it anymore. GIRLS RESIST is a cool, relevant, timely activism handbook that speaks to teen girl readers like the intelligent and passionate people they are. In this age of political Teen Vogue editorials and teen actors frankly discussing topics like feminism and white privilege, young women are more engaged, excited, and fired up than ever-- but they also need guidance. Chapters will cover standard topics like picking a cause, fundraising, networking, and protesting, but devote plenty of space to teen-specific topics and how-tos like having tough talks with unsupportive family members, lobbying and campaigning for representatives when you're too young to vote, and best practices for being effective (and safe!) while raising awareness on social media. Plus, the fresh design will make this as much a selfpurchase as a gift, fitting perfectly between magazines and YA novels on a teen girl's shelf. Extremely timely content for a rapidly growing readership that's constantly making news Fresh, contemporary, fun design (think FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY) will make this stand out from other NF titles on the subject Author has extensive professional experience in grassroots organizing and a broad knowledge of social justice topics A self-purchasable title for teens; this is the book they'll grab to share with their friends and get going Stands out from all competitive titles by not talking down, sugarcoating, or sticking to less actionable advice that's geared towards younger teens and tweens
