Publisher's Summary

What best-selling authors like Sheryl Sandberg and Brigid Schulte have done for women's work lives, Jaclyn Friedman does here for women's sexuality: spark a culture-wide rethink about what's accepted as normal, urging us all to try for something better. Not only that: She does it with warmth, irreverence, and candor reminiscent of Roxane Gay in Bad Feminist and the fiery conviction of her own coedited anthology Yes Means Yes!

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.

Beautiful

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.
