A passionate and deeply personal exploration of feminism during divisive times from one of the founders of Time’s Up: actor, filmmaker, and activist Amber Tamblyn. “A work of personal upheaval and political reckoning.”—Rebecca Traister, New York Times bestselling author of Good and Mad   Amber Tamblyn has emerged as an outspoken advocate for women’s rights. But she wasn’t always so bold and self-possessed. In her late twenties, after a particularly low period fueled by rejection and disillusionment, she grabbed hold of her own destiny and entered into what she calls an Era of Ignition—a time of self-reflection that follows in the wake of personal upheaval and leads us to challenge the status quo. In the process of undergoing this metamorphosis, she realized that our country is going through an Era of Ignition of its own, and she set about agitating for change by initiating a dialogue about gender inequality.   In this deeply personal exploration of modern feminism, she addresses misogyny and discrimination, reproductive rights and sexual assault, white feminism and pay parity—all through the lens of her own experiences as well as those of her Sisters in Solidarity. At once an intimate meditation and a public reckoning, Era of Ignition is a galvanizing feminist manifesto that is required reading for anyone who wants to help change the world for the better.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Blazing and wise, Tamblyn’s foray into nonfiction is required reading for the resistance, and nothing short of sensational. Booklist (starred review)
Era of Ignition offers illuminating insights into the changing face of feminism and the continued struggle to overcome the hardening lines of gender injustice. A personal and passionate story about making a world ‘that is nourished, healed, and flourishing.’ Kirkus Reviews
“A personal look at big picture questions, Era of Ignition reminds us how powerful, exhausting, and confusing it can be to go through life as a human woman. A mad, frank, tender, and very good read, written with love by a writer who loves you. Amy Poehler, New York Times bestselling author of Yes, Please 
“A raw, gutsy, and exposing memoir unafraid to confront difficult questions in this turbulent time. America Ferrera, New York Times bestselling author of American Like Me
In Era of Ignition, Amber Tamblyn tackles crucial questions of this period, as a white feminist thinking about issues of gender and racial inequality, white supremacy, misogyny, economic and professional injustice and power abuses in her own industry and beyond. Rebecca Traister, New York Times bestselling author of Good and Mad
“A personal call to action that reminds us revolution starts by holding up the mirror. A must read, candid coming of age story. Ayanna Pressley, congresswoman from Massachusetts
Amber is a unique combination—a creative powerhouse as well as a fierce activist and advocate who understands that ‘feminist’ is not a passive label. Era of Ignition is beautifully written, unflinchingly honest, and laugh-out-loud funny. This is a coming-of-age story that chronicles not only Amber’s life and career, but this once-in-a-generation moment when women across America are discovering power and strength we never knew we had. Cecile Richards, New York Times bestselling author of Make Trouble
