Make Your Own Sandwich

By Julie Mastrine

In an age when “Make me a sandwich!” or “I’m not a feminist, but…” is a common preface to discussing sexism in society, openly talking about feminist issues can be a challenge. This collection of essays features a 20-something’s musings on how sex and gender politics have shaped her worldview. She discusses common issues facing women and LGBTQ folks today, including street harassment, body-hatred, the decision to wear makeup, harmful messages in pop culture, and the politics of the #selfie. Make Your Own Sandwich offers a bold look at the flawed attitudes and societal structures facing young women today — and how a sense of empowerment can emerge through all the muck.
