Must Read on The Next Generation of Social Justice Activism Launches

Put this on your must read list! Courtney Martin, of Feministing and Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters fame, has just launched a new book. Do It Anyway: The New Generation of Activists profiles the work of eight activists, doing what they can to make this world a better place.  As Courtney writes in "Generation Misunderstood" (a Women's Media Center Exclusive),

I found young people trying to make their lives matter each and every day, straining to be of service to others, asking important and complex questions about how one can be ethical and authentic in one’s activism and still pay the rent at the end of the day.
