Item description for We Got Issues!: A Young Women's Guide to a Bold, Courageous and Empowered Life by Rha Goddess & J. Love Calderon...
In 2005, the "We Got Issues" team, Rha Goddess and JLove Calderon, traveled the country gathering rants from over 1,000 women, from Rikers Island to the Republican National Convention. They held community dialogues, rantfests, and Red Tent gatherings. This joyful call-to-arms by young women warriors collects the best of those events. We Got Issues! showcases a new feminine generation as they speak honestly and courageously about the 10 most important issues facing young women today, from money and racism, to relationships and motherhood. Each chapter frames a particular issue socially, culturally, and politically. A diverse range of rants, poems, and monologues are accompanied by an inspiring portrait of a woman warrior, "rituals of empowerment," quotes, statistics, and trends. Powerful black-and-white images capture these spiritual descendents of Eve Ensler, Alice Walker, Jane Fonda, and other old-schoolers acting up, acting out, and demanding change.

a refreshing look at young women's voices Oct 11, 2006
rha and jlove have connected with young women first hand and created a platform for young women to step up and speak out in their langugage, on their terms, pc or not. the result is this book. and although i don't agree with some of the politics in these pieces, that's what makes me this book so special. these women are not regurgitating feminist values, they have real, personal issues they are dealing with everyday. you often hear that "women's voices are never heard" but they are, if you are looking in the right places---like this book!!
