How to Be a Woman Caitlin Moran read online review & book description:


The book that launched a feminist revolution—the hilarious memoir/manifesto from Caitlin Moran, "the UK's answer to Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and Lena Dunham all rolled into one" (Marie Claire).

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.

  • A MUST Read!

    By Mlan4
    I had this book passed from my gran, to mum, and then myself. She is super funny, describing her experience with coming-of-age & womanhood. I my opinion, a perfect feminist! (No man-bashing here! Quite the opposite!)
  • Absolutely wonderful

    Caitlin Moran is a certifiable classic British loon and her gift for verbiage is breathtaking. I have a hard time imagining anybody not enjoying this book and getting a lot out of it.
  • Read it

    Just read it, okay?
  • Wonderful

    By Astockman
    This will be considered a classic work in it's own time.
  • All Men Should Read This--As Should Every Woman

    By Hlenow
    I am sending this book to my daughter, a PhD candidate in cutting edge gender studies. I can't imagine a more important contribution to the field. Then, I am sending it to everyone I know or telling everyone to read it. I am a 58 year old straight father of five and proud to be labeled a "feminist" and hopeful to think that Caitlin Moran would agree. Funny, laugh out loud funny, honest, courageous and poignant. A modern classic, as important as any great work in this ongoing revolution of gender equality.
