"This book is a true love letter, not only to Jha's own son but also to all of our sons and to the parents--especially mothers--who raise them.”
—Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race and Mediocre


Beautifully written and deeply personal, this book follows the struggles and triumphs of one single, immigrant mother of color to raise an American feminist son. From teaching consent to counteracting problematic messages from the media, well-meaning family, and the culture at large, the author offers an empowering, imperfect feminism, brimming with honest insight and actionable advice.

Informed by Jha's work as a professor of journalism specializing in social justice movements and social media, as well as by conversations with psychologists, experts, other parents and boys--and through powerful stories from her own life--How to Raise a Feminist Son shows us all how to be better feminists and better teachers of the next generation of men in this electrifying tour de force.
Includes chapter takeaways, and an annotated bibliography of reading and watching recommendations for adults and children.

"A beautiful hybrid of memoir, manifesto, instruction manual, and rumination on the power of story and possibilities of family."
—Rebecca Solnit, author of The Mother of All Questions
