Changing the world starts with you! Challenge your own biases with this super-sharp workbook. Written by educator and NYT best-selling Bad Feminist author Dr. Roxane Gay, and Megan Pillow.

Confront your biases to change the world! Do The Work is a sharp workbook by educator Professor Roxane Gay and writer Megan Pillow, who discuss those with power and those without.

Power is complex. But Do the Work makes sense of it, clearing up complicated social issues. From racism, to sexism, to ableism, no prejudice is left out. Open your eyes wide to inequalities. Help others and make the world a better place! To make changes, we need to know what to change. This starts with our own attitudes, actions and intentions. We need someone to ask us the difficult questions.

Do The Work, asks:
Why do we accept power imbalances?
Who has the least and the most power?
What power do we have in society?
What were we taught growing up?
How can we right our wrongs and create a fairer world?
Keep up with the zeitgeist! Get a crisp overview of top social concepts, as Do the Work explains:
  • Laura Mulvey's theory of the male gaze
  • Lennard J. Davis's idea of "the norm"
  • Kimberle Crenshaw's theory of intersectionality
  • Sara Ahmed's idea about positions of consciousness
With these guiding influences, be encouraged to Do The Work. And it all starts with working on your understanding of power. It's the first step towards a more fulfilling life and a better world for everyone. By the end, you'll know how power is distributed. And you'll be better at using your voice to help others.
