This book is more of an entertaining memoir than a study of modern womanhood, which is ok in my book, it works! Caitlin Moran uses the backdrop of pivotal moments and issues in every woman's life to tell her story, from her entrance into womanhood to her musings on various female topics. While I won't list every topic Moran discusses I found some of her topics particularly interesting.

Moran's theory of the evolution of the popular way for a Woman to keep her...for lack of a better word...nether regions ...had me in tears..What's more, I believe her theory to be correct and I think women everywhere should rebel and go back to the way things used to be. Moran's description of her family life with her sisters was so endearing that I would love a second book on that subject alone.

Her musings on women's weight issues were thought-provoking too, she brings a unique perspective to this issue that struck a cord with me..."overeating , says Moran, is the addiction of choice of carers, and that's why it's come to be regarded as the lowest - ranking of all the addictions." I agree. Moran's thought here sits better to me than simply brushing off a woman's weight gain as "letting herself go." Moran also discusses motherhood, marriage, and most courageously, abortion. I found her telling of her personal experience one of the most honest, raw and intense that I have ever read. She made me think on a subject that I had thought I'd closed the door is a rare book that can do that! From start to finish, How to Be a Woman is a worthwhile read.
