How to be a Woman


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.

All OK

Book was enjoyed my niece (it was a birthday gift. I was not able to send the order directly to her when filling out the order form, so had to send it UPS as USPO wouldn't accept the type of packaging.

Every intelligent man that ever fell in love with a woman needs to read this book. All the things I wanted to know about a woman but was affaid to ask. I now have a new appreciation for all of the women in my life.

Feminism is a good thing

by Sonya M on Sep 22, 2012

Witty, honest ramblings about the condition of womanhood. It is my responsibility to myself, my daughters, and all the women I love to be a feminist.
