This chapter cites the perils of perfection feminism. Writing on Glass is an online media platform aiming to make the feminist theory more accessible, then, later on, helping other women build businesses. The platform tried to void corporate feminism wherein products and services to women were not benefiting women's rights. However, in late 2018, the business imploded alongside Feminist Incubator as the owner became reliant on male clients and his fiance's income after serving numerous people for little money. According to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the pursuit of perfection is immature as it is the extreme idea of purity within feminism. The passion for feminism is largely in line with resilience than perfection.
