Description

The New York Times bestseller, now available in paperback---Half memoir, half polemic, and entirely necessary, - (Elle UK) Caitlin Moran's debut--an instant runaway bestseller in the UK--puts a new face on feminism, cutting to the heart of issues with an irreverent, transcendent, and hilarious touch. -Caitlin Moran is the profane, witty and wonky best friend I wish I had. She's the feminist rock star we need right now.---Ayelet Waldman, author of Bad Mother -Caitlin Moran is so fabulous, so funny, so freshly feminist. I don't want to be like her--I want to be her.- --Peggy Orenstein, author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter Caitlin Moran puts a new face on feminism, cutting to the heart of women's issues today with her irreverent, transcendent, and hilarious How to Be a Woman. -Half memoir, half polemic, and entirely necessary, - (Elle UK), Moran's debut was an instant runaway bestseller in England as well as an Amazon UK Top Ten book of the year; still riding high on bestseller lists months after publication, it is a bona fide cultural phenomenon. Now poised to take American womanhood by storm, here is a book that Vanity Fair calls -the U.K. version of Tina Fey's Bossypants....You will laugh out loud, wince, and--in my case--feel proud to be the same gender as the author.-show more

Review quote

-How funny is Caitlin Moran's neo-feminist manifesto and memoir, How to Be a Woman? Don't read it with a full bladder....You could spend a whole book group session flagging favorite lines.....There's some comfort in Moran's book coming out so soon after Nora Ephron's death.---Heller McAlpin, Barnes & Noble Reviewshow more

Back cover copy

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
