Scarlett sehnte sich schon immer danach, das Festival Caraval zu besuchen. Es verspricht die magische Erfüllung von Wünschen, Abenteuern und Freiheit.

"Bitches get stuff done." Tina Fey Klug und provokant, witzig und kompromisslos sind Laurie Pennys herausragende Essays, die sie zu Recht zu einer der wichtigsten und faszinierenden Stimmen des zeitgenössischen Feminismus machen. Vom Schock der Trump-Wahl und den Siegen der extremen Rechten bis zu Cybersexismus und Hate Speech – Penny wirft einen scharfen Blick auf die brennenden Themen unserer Zeit. Denn gerade jetzt, in Zeiten sich häufender Krisen in Europa und Amerika, ist es Verpflichtung, geschlossen hinter der Gleichstellung von Frauen, People of Colour und LGBT zu stehen. Der Kampf gegen Diskriminierung ist kein Nebenschauplatz, sondern Voraussetzung für eine gerechte Gesellschaft. Weit davon entfernt, einen Kampf gegen "die Männer" zu führen, greift Penny den Status quo gezielt an: Es geht ihr um Fairness, Umverteilung von Vermögen, Macht und Einfluss – weitreichende Forderungen, die sie nicht abmildert, indem sie eine rosa Schleife darum bindet. Penny ruft dazu auf, sich nicht von jenen beeindrucken zu lassen, die uns den Mund verbieten und uns zu angepasster Liebenswürdigkeit zwingen wollen – sondern eine Bitch zu sein und die Stimme zu erheben.
