What should we make of the fact that feminism has gone mainstream? Bitch Magazine founding editor AndiZeisler explores that question in her new book, We Were Feminists Once.

Zeisler argues that feminism has been rebranded and co-opted by pop culture. But this new media-friendly version is almost exclusively about personal identity and consumption. How can we get back to focusing on the collective goals of equality and social justice?
