Summary
  • "A passionate manifesto with personal stories, anecdotes, and opinions from the front lines of modern American womanhood from actor, filmmaker, and activist Amber Tamblyn"--
  • "Through her fierce op-eds and tireless work as one of the founders of the Time's Up organization, Amber Tamblyn has emerged as an outspoken and respected advocate for women's rights. But she wasn't always so bold and self-possessed. In her late twenties, Amber experienced a crisis of character while trying to break out of the confines of the acting career she'd forged as a child, in order to become the writer and director she dreamed of being as an adult. After a particularly low period fueled by rejection and disillusionment, she grabbed hold of her own destiny and entered into what she calls an Era of Ignition--a time of self-reflection that follows in the wake of personal upheaval and leads to a call to action and a challenge to the status quo. In the process of undergoing this metaphysical metamorphosis, she realized that our country is going through an Era of Ignition of its own, and she has seized on this moment to agitate for change and initiate a dialogue about gender inequality. In this deeply personal exploration of modern feminism, she addresses misogyny and discrimination, trauma and the veiled complexities of consent, white feminism and pay parity, reproductive rights and sexual assault--all through the lens of her own experiences, as well as those of her Sisters in Solidarity. At once an intimate meditation and a public reckoning, Era of Ignition is a galvanizing feminist manifesto that is required reading for anyone attempting to understand the world we live in and help change it for the better."--Dust jacket
