Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them?Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from the riot of adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother. With rapier wit, Moran slices right to the truth whether it's about the workplace, strip clubs, love, fat, abortion, popular entertainment, or children to jump-start a new conversation about feminism. With humor, insight, and verve, How To Be a Woman lays bare the reasons why female rights and empowerment are essential issues not only for women today but also for society itself."show more

Review quote

A spirited memoir/manifesto .With equal amounts snarky brio and righteous anger .That such an important topic is couched in ribald humor makes reading about Moran s journey hilarious as well as provocative .Rapturously irreverent, this book should kick-start plenty of useful discussions. --"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)"show more
