There’s no stopping feminist firebrand Lindy West as she takes on trolls, fat shamers, gender stereotypers, pop culture and politicians with biting clarity and sass. Hear from the writer Esquire called “one of our foremost thinkers on gender” on the eve of the launch of her latest essay collection, The Witches are Coming.

Tidak ada yang bisa menghentikan feminis Lindy West saat ia menghadapi para pengganggu, orang yang merundung mereka yang gemuk, para penceloteh stereotip gender, budaya pop dan para elit politik dengan penjelasan yang tepat sasaran dan mengena. Dengarkan penuturan penulis yang oleh Esquire disebut sebagai “salah satu pemikir utama kita mengenai gender” pada malam peluncuran kumpulan esai terbarunya, The Witches are Coming.
