How to Be a Woman By Caitlin Moran

written by No Comments posted in Nonfiction, Reference, Science

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.

“Caitlin Moran is a feminist heroine for our times. I can’t wait to give this book to my daughters.”
–Zo Heller, author of The Believers

“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.”
–Emma Gilbey Keller, Vanity Fair

“As funny and careerist as Tina Fey’s Bossypants, as divulging as Ayelet Waldman’s Bad Mother and as earthy as Cheryl Strayed’s Wild.”
–Holloway McCandless, Shelf Awareness

“Caitlin Moran taught me more about being a woman than being a woman did. I’m pretty sure I had testicles before I read this book.”
–Jenny Lawson, author of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir

“Caitlin Moran is the profane, witty and wonky best friend I wish I had. She’s the feminist rock star we need right now; How to Be a Woman is an hilarious delight.”
–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. But if I can’t, at least I can relish her book. You will, too.”
–Peggy Orenstein, author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter
