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.
With a smashing sense of humor and unafraid of revealing her own insecurities, Caitlin Moran encourages women to not just be, simply because they are women. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Gina Sitaras

Sadly, I gave up reading this book half way, but I may go back to it at some stage. A bit too hectic for me.Published 19 days ago by catcrazy
How to Be a Woman is a hilarious Coming of Age Tale. The idea that she writes it as a tutorial is a bit ludicrous. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Keri Izoco
