In the opening pages of her bestselling book Bad Feminist, Roxane Gay writes, “I disavowed feminism because I had no rational understanding of the movement. I was called a feminist, and what I heard was, ‘You are an angry, sex-hating, man-hating victim lady person.’” In the essays that follow, Gay uses razor-sharp insight to slice apart our misconceptions of feminism, and in the process announces herself as one of America’s foremost voices on issues ranging from gender to identity, pop culture, politics, and more. Gay will also discuss her debut novel An Untamed State, which begins with the kidnapping of the narrator in Port-au-Prince. The New York Times called the book a fairytale in the vein of Brother Grimm, “its complex and fragile moral arrived at through great pain and high cost.”
