A fresh cultural analysis of female monsters from Greek mythology, and an invitation for all women
to reclaim these stories as inspiration for a more wild, more "monstrous" version of feminism

“Reconsiders and spins anew myths that have long instructed and inspired us, detailing modern and longstanding terrors women face while illuminating
the monstrous powers we may yet reclaim. I started to make a list of people I wanted to give this book to, then realized the answer was just ‘everyone I know.’”
—Nicole Chung,
author of All You Can Ever Know

“Every one of these essays is muscular and dangerous, with a mouth full of teeth. Women and Other Monsters is sure to become a feminist classic.”
Carmen Maria Machado, author of In the Dream House

“We are so long overdue for new mythologies about women and power. Jess’s book is a pitch-perfect antidote to the sexist hash of our traditional stories.”
Soraya Chemaly, author of Rage Becomes Her
