9780062124296: How to Be a Woman

Winner, 2011 Galaxy National Book Awards More4 Popular Non-Fiction Book of the Year

1913 - Suffragette throws herself under the King's horse.

1969 - Feminists storm Miss World.

NOW - Caitlin Moran rewrites The Female Eunuch from a bar stool and demands to know why pants are getting smaller.

There's never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain...

Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina? Why does your bra hurt? And why does everyone ask you when you're going to have a baby?

Part memoir, part rant, Caitlin Moran answers these questions and more in How To Be A Woman - following her from her terrible 13th birthday ('I am 13 stone, have no friends, and boys throw gravel at me when they see me') through adolescence, the workplace, strip-clubs, love, fat, abortion, TopShop, motherhood and beyond.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Trade Paperback.. 224 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.

Book Description Harper Perennial, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "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 herI 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, andin my casefeel proud to be the same gender as the author.".
