In Unscrewed, Friedman reveals that the anxiety and fear women in our country feel around issues of their sexuality are not, in fact, their fault but instead are side effects of our toxic culture. Dubbed the "era of fauxpowerment", that culture gives women the illusion of sexual power, with no actual power to support it. Exploring where media, religion, politics, and education overlap with feminist issues, Unscrewed breaks down the causes and signs of fauxpowerment then gives listeners tools to take it on themselves.

This book brought clarity to the things I think we all feel. It asked important questions, included relevant research, and made suggestions about practical solutions. I related to so much of what Jaclyn Friedman wrote. I devoured this book, listening every chance I had. I'm grateful for this woman's work and the inclusive, honest perspective she brings.
