With the fiery conviction that powered her anthology Yes Means Yes!, Jaclyn Friedman’s Unscrewed reveals that the anxiety and fear that many women feel around issues of their sexuality are not their fault but rather are side effects of our toxic culture. Unscrewed breaks down the causes and signs of “faux-powerment,” then gives readers tools to take it on themselves. Jaclyn Friedman is a writer, performer, and activist. She has been a guest on BBC World Have Your Say, Democracy Now, To the Contrary, and numerous other radio and television shows, and her commentary has appeared on CNN and in the Washington Post, the Nation, Jezebel, Feministing.com, Bitch, and other media outlets.
