9780142181683: You Don't Have to Like Me: Essays on Growing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding Feminism

Alida Nugent's first book, Don t Worry, It Gets Worse (Plume, 2013), received terrific reviews, and her self-deprecating everygirl approach continues to win the Internet-savvy writer and blogger new fans. Now, she takes on one of today's hottest cultural topics: feminism.

Nugent is a proud feminist and she's not afraid to say it. From the scarlet F thrust upon you if you declare yourself a feminist at a party to how to handle judgmental Boots staff when you pop in for the morning-after pill, YOU DON T HAVE TO LIKE ME skewers a range of cultural issues, and confirms Nugent as a star on the rise.

Product Description:

Alida Nugent's self-deprecating 'everygirl' approach continues to win the Internet-savvy writer and blogger new fans. Now, she takes on one of today's hottest cultural topics: feminism. Nugent is a proud feminist - and she's not afraid to say it. From the 'scarlet F' thrust upon you if you declare yourself a feminist at a party to how to handle judgmental Boots staff when you pop in for the morning-after pill, You Don't Have to Like Me skewers a range of cultural issues, and confirms Nugent as a star on the rise.

Review:

"We fell in love with Nugent just pages into her first book, Don't Worry, It Gets Worse, and now she's back with an equally hilarious collection of essays on what she refers to as the 'scarlet F,' or feminism." -- Glamour

"As the title suggests, Alida doesn't care if you like her, but she does want you to understand why feminism is still so important, and this book illustrates that in a way that's hilarious, fresh, and down-to-earth." -- Cosmo

"Buy it for the badass, Georgia O'Keeffe inspired cover, keep it for the keen insights." -- Huffington Post

"Witty and conversational, covering topics like Finding Feminism. Her writing is hilarious and it feels like you're just listening to a friend talk, who's maybe had a few drinks." -- Emma Gannon, Girl Lost in the City

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 203 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Hilarious.[Nugent] documents her journey to feminism while skewering misogynist tropes and delivering some painful truths. -Publishers Weekly (starred review) Feminist is not a four-letter word, but Alida Nugent resisted it for a long time. She feared the scarlet F being thrust upon her for refusing to laugh at misogynistic jokes at parties; she withered under the judgmental gaze of store clerks when buying Plan B, and she swore that she was not like other girls. But eventually, like so many of us, she discovered that feminism is an empowering identity to take on. It s okay to criticize beauty standards but still love dark lipstick, investing in female friendships is the most rewarding thing ever, and no one should feel pressured to eat an unseasoned chicken breast the size of a deck of playing cards as every sad dinner for the rest of eternity. With sincerity, intelligence, and wit, Nugent invites readers in to her most private moments of personal growth. From struggling with an eating disorder for most of her teen years to embracing all aspects of her biracial identity, she tackles tough topics with honest vulnerability. Smartly-written, unapologetic, and laugh-out-loud funny, You Don t Have to Like Me is perfect for readers of Roxane Gay, Rebecca Skolnit, and Sloane Crosley. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780142181683
