I've just finished reading the book.

The book documents the verbal and physical abuse a lot of women have to put up with, predominantly by men, almost on a daily basis in the UK & US.

The author does discuss briefly abuse against men, but the book is essentially about women.

As a father and grandfather of girls I found it very shocking that this stuff is still happening.

Laura Bates does a good job raising awareness of everyday sexism against women. She, however, only briefly discusses solutions.

BTW, I didn't find the book anti-men at all.

It is anti-abuse whether committed by men or women.

A wonderful book that details the struggles that women face in everyday life due to sexism/misogyny. It is eye opening and well researched. I highly recommend it.

Having followed the Everyday Sexism project on Twitter and the website for a while now, I was looking forward to a book summary. This did not disappoint, it roughly categorises the themes and illustrates them (sometimes painfully, sometimes with humour) with real stories from the Project.
Recommended read, especially for parents raising the next generation.

this great profile of how sexism is embedded into almost every aspect of daily life. Raises awareness of how women adapt and make decisions based on sexism often without even being fully aware of the reasons they are doing this. Excellent book and highly recommended to men and women
