Sonora Jha, Ph.D., is a novelist, essayist, researcher, and a Professor of Journalism at Seattle University. Sonora was born in India, where she had a career as a journalist in Mumbai and Bangalore before moving to Singapore and then to the United States.
Sonora’s academic research on the emerging intersections of the press, politics, and the Internet has been published in top-tier national and international scholarly journals.
Part memoir, part manifesto, How to Raise a Feminist Son is a confluence of the author’s life, her rich inner life, family life, and feminism. With discussions on media, race, sexuality, sexism, racism, and everything in between, the author leaves almost nothing un-inspected. Sonora writes through a trained feminist lens, and her love and empathy for her son and others is felt on the page.
