Roxane Gay introduces Not That Bad

Cultural critic and New York Times best-selling author of Bad Feminist and Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, Roxane Gay, shares a new anthology.

Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture collects original and previously published essays from established and up-and-coming writers, performers (including actors Ally Sheedy and Gabrielle Union), and critics that address what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence, and aggression they face, and where they are routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, gaslit, insulted, and bullied for speaking out. Searing and heartbreakingly candid, this provocative collection both reflects the world we live in and offers a call to arms insisting that not that bad must no longer be good enough.
