The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride: What No One Tells You Before You Say "I Do"

Wedding season is upon us, but have you ever wonder how weird it is that brides need their parents’ permission to marry but grooms do not? Are you curious why women don't propose more? Have you noticed that men usually don't wear engagement rings? Are you at all outraged that there's a fair amount of slut shaming toward women on bachelorette parties? If so, the book, The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride: What No One Tells You Before You Say 'I Do'" by author Katrina Majkut will have the answer you are seeking and more. 

After breaking into her own apartment in her underwear to save a bridesmaid’s dress, experiencing outlandish sexual harassment from men while celebrating friends’
bachelorette parties, and then watching friends’ similar misadventures, Majkut threw in her newlywed monogrammed towel and said, “What’s with all the wedding drama? Women deserve better than this!”

With the help of feminism (the greatest gift anyone can put on a wedding registry), Majkut uncovers eye-opening historical truths and investigates how social traditions impact people’s lives both socially and civilly. She discovers that it’s not just about the bride and discusses how wedding rituals must evolve to better support marriage equality and respect diverse people’s needs (and, gasp, even men’s). Majkut lays out how couples can act with more integrity and love on their big day because equality can’t happen unless everyone works together. Just take it from Majkut—who learned the hard way—the perfect wedding includes perfect equality!

Join Majkut on Friday May 11th at 6pm for a book reading, signing, and Q&A by Majkut.
