About this product
- DescriptionIt's a good 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 we use Botox? Do men secretly hate us? And why does everyone ask you when you're going to have a baby? This book answers these questions.
- Author BiographyCaitlin Moran had literally no friends in 1990, and so had plenty of time to write her first novel, The Chronicles of Narmo, at the age of fifteen. At sixteen she joined music weekly, Melody Maker, and at eighteen briefly presented the pop show 'Naked City' on Channel 4. Following this precocious start she then put in eighteen solid years as a columnist on The Times - both as a TV critic and also in the most-read part of the paper, the satirical celebrity column 'Celebrity Watch' - winning the British Press Awards' Columnist of The Year award in 2010 and Critic and Interviewer of the Year in 2011. The eldest of eight children, home-educated in a council house in Wolverhampton, Caitlin read lots of books about feminism - mainly in an attempt to be able to prove to her brother, Eddie, that she was scientifically better than him. Caitlin isn't really her name. She was christened 'Catherine'. But she saw 'Caitlin' in a Jilly Cooper novel when she was 13 and thought it looked exciting. That's why she pronounces it incorrectly: 'Catlin'. It causes trouble for everyone.

A well read and thought out look at feminism.
Loving this book. Ordered from an Ebay seller so I would not have to wait months to read it. Caitlin Moran is wonderfully witty and smart. She pulls no punches and tells it exactly as she sees it in a well rounded and well thought out way. Reading this book feels like talking to an old friend. She takes the ideas of Brazilians and uncomfortable shoes and shows how silly and completely unnecessary they really are. This copy is destined to be well read and crumpled from much handling. She has redefined and refreshed the old term Feminism and shown it in a new light that makes being a feminist a good thing. Bless this women for such a wonderful, candid book.
