I’ve heard of this book and Caitlin Moran, but never really read or paid much attention to her before. This book was on my Audible recommended books and I saw it was read by the author so I thought I’d give it a chance.
I loved the book. Moran has written a book of every thought I have ever had about growing up, life and womanhood. She talks about growing up and not knowing what or how to ask about how to be a female. Dealing with such topics as periods, breasts, vaginas, boys and casual sexism – all in a days work for a woman.
It makes a difference if the book is read by the author. You feel as if you are in conversation with the author. For a few weeks I was part of a car share to work with Caitlin Moran- although she never offered to drive once!
One thing I liked was how she defined feminism. I used to have issues with the idea of feminism but now I would stand on a chair proudly and proclaim that I too am a strident feminist. Every female, and male for that matter should read this. She doesn’t claim to have all the answers, but she totally puts life in a different perspective.
Also I love her hair, she is rocking a lighter stripe in her hair, I may just embrace my grey hair as a homage to Caitlin Moran…
