Welcome to The Blasted Tree's creative nonfiction series Feminist Perspectives! This week's entry is an autobiographical account by Victoria-based author Dana Neily. What happens when a feminist makes a mistake? Neily lays out a plan toward self-awareness, compassionate conflict resolution, and personal growth through failure. HOW TO FUCK UP LIKE A FEMINIST shows that, while nobody is perfect, the option to improve is always there.
If you're new to this series, we recommend beginning with the Forward, also by Bea Keeler, as a quick way to familiarize yourself with the issues and with the general approach we've taken in curating this collection.
