"My name is Flora Jessop. I've been called apostate, vigilante, and crazy bitch, and maybe I am. But some people call me a hero, and I'd like to think they're right too. If I am a hero, maybe it's because every time I can play a part in saving a child or a woman from a life of servitude and degradation, I'm saving a little piece of me, too. was one of twenty-eight children born to my dad and his three wives."

I’ve read over 8 books about the FLDS because it’s interesting and a rare chance to find a small community of people where there are a lot of books about the same events and you hear family members and situations from different perspectives.

Back to Flora or Jesse as she goes by later on, she literally goes through sooo many different challenges and overcomes it all with the help of others that she was formerly told were apostates and evil. From an intense church upbringing to Lydia giving her a back door abortion to falling to a low point of abusing drugs she over comes it all and goes on to form a strong family and help others.

Wish I could help Flora with her causes! :)

Hard hitting and entertaining, Feminist Fight Club blends personal stories with research, statistics, and no-bullsh*t expert advice.

I get why the book is written the way it is, however, I think it starts off defensive when these haven't been my experiences in the corporate world. I'm glad it's asking women to stand up for themselves which is needed. There are certain parts that I disagree with about it but I hope it helps someone else.
