The Feminist Agenda Of Jemima Kincaid

Kate Hattemer



Jemima Kincaid is a feminist. Her private school is laden with problematic traditions, but the worst of all is prom. The girls have to wait for promposals, and only the hetero kids even go. When Jemima is named to Senior Triumvirate, alongside superstar athlete Andy and popular Gennifer, the three must organize prom. Inspired by her feminist ideals, Jemima proposes a new structure: a Last Chance Dance: every student privately submits a list of crushes to a website that pairs them with any mutual matches. Is the new prom system really enough to extinguish the school's raging dumpster fire of toxic masculinity?
