By Karen A. Foss, BA '72 (Romance languages), MA '73 (speech); Sonja K. Foss, BA '72 (Romance languages), MA '73 (speech: rhetoric and communication); and Alena Amato Ruggerio

Feminism in Practice uses feminism as a blueprint for exploring change strategies. It features twenty contemporary feminists from diverse arenas, including Lizzo, Margaret Cho, Jacinda Adern, Shonda Rhimes, and Malala Yousafzai. The book is organized around five change objectives: proclaiming identity, naming a problem, enriching a system, changing a system, and creating an alternative system.
