From three of the organisers of the International Women's Strike US: a manifesto for when 'leaning in' is not enough. Unaffordable housing, poverty wages, universal healthcare, police violence; not the issues you ordinarily hear feminists talking about. But why should feminism only deal with issues that impact middle-class women? For most of us - for 99% of us - 'leaning in' at our corporate board room meeting is not an option. This is a manifesto for the 99%. Those for whom increasing the minimum wage and implementing universal health and childcare would have a far greater impact on their lives that having more women CEOs. It is a manifesto that demands an end to mass incarceration and inhumane border regimes, the provision of safe and truly affordable housing, freedom for Palestine, an end to imperialist wars in the middle-east and much more. From three of the organisers of the International Women's Strike, this manifesto argues that these are all feminist issues. Feminism shouldn't start - or stop - with seeing women represented at the top of society. It should start with the 99%.

"[The authors] cut through the corporate feminist "Lean In" noise to offer a feminism rooted not just in intersectionality of identity but also in economic justice. After years of books on feminism that have started to say the same thing, everyone (not just women!) should buy this one." -Vogue

"Cinzia Arruzza, Tithi Bhattacharya, and Nancy Fraser ... have collaborated and written what is effectively a prospective programme for the global women's movement, a feminist manifesto for the 99%." - Socialism Today
