A passionate and deeply personal exploration of feminism during divisive times from one of the founders of Time's Up: actor, filmmaker, and activist Amber Tamblyn.

With a new afterword •“A work of personal upheaval and political reckoning.—Rebecca Traister,New York Timesbestselling author ofGood and Mad

Amber Tamblyn has emerged as an outspoken advocate for women's rights. But she wasn't always so bold and self-possessed. In her late twenties, after a particularly low period fueled by rejection and disillusionment, she grabbed hold of her own destiny and entered into what she calls an Era of Ignition—a time of self-reflection that follows in the wake of personal upheaval and leads us to challenge the status quo. In the process of undergoing this metaphysical metamorphosis, she realized that our country is going through an Era of Ignition of its own, and she set about agitating for change by initiating a dialogue about gender inequality.

In this deeply personal exploration of modern feminism, she addresses misogyny and discrimination, reproductive rights and sexual assault, white feminism and pay parity—all through the lens of her own experiences as well as those of her Sisters in Solidarity. At once an intimate meditation and a public reckoning,Era of Ignitionis a galvanizing feminist manifesto that is required reading for anyone who wants to help change the world for the better.
