Selected by Emma Watson for her feminist book club `Our Shared Shelf' It'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? Part memoir, part rant, Caitlin answers the questions that every modern woman is asking.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I adore, admire and - more - am addicted to Caitin Moran's writing" * Nigella Lawson *
"I have been waiting for this book my whole life" * Claudia Winkleman *
"This might just be the funniest intelligent book ever written .. Moran's work packs a feminist punch in a way that Germaine Greer and an entire army of female eunuchs could never do, because she writes about things we've all done, thought, and said - but not quite so eloquently...the book everyone will be talking about" * Stylist *
"Moran's writing sparkles with wit and warmth. Like the confidences of your smartest friend" * Simon Pegg *
"It would almost be unkind to call this an important book, because what it mostly is is engaging, brave and consistently, cleverly naughtily funny, but actually it is important that we talk about this stuff" -- Katy Guest * Independent on Sunday *
"Humour and common sense make Moran's redefining of what it means to be a feminist as readable as it is essential" * Elle *
"Spectacular! Very, very funny, moving and revealing" * Jonathan Ross *
"It is so brilliant ... it deserves to be read more than once" -- Emma Watson
"A must read for all humans, this" -- Dave Sexton * Evening Standard *
"The book EVERY woman should read" * Grazia *
"A witty and bold account of modern womanhood ... she is a genuinely original talent" -- Germaine Greer * The Times *
"Hilarious" * Heat *
"Very, very funny...however, if you are female and particularly if you are a female under the age of 30, then, tucked around the jokes, Moran has provided you with a short, sharp, feminist manifesto." -- Miranda Sawyer * Observer *
"Addictive stuff and extremely funny" -- Daisy Goodwin * Sunday Times *
"I loved How to be a Woman so much that, during the two days it took me to read, I couldn't bear to be parted from it; like a best friend you can't stop gossiping with." * Sunday Express *
"I devoured How to Be A Woman in one sitting...this is the book that frustrated boyfriends have wanted someone...to write for decades" -- Dan Stevens * The Times *
"Anarchic, bonkers 21st century woman's lib with laughs" * Red *
"Moran is a clever, cheery companionable voice of sanity and How to Be A Woman is a laugh-aloud call to arms" * Metro *
"This brilliantly argued and urgently needed book - highly comic and deadly serious - is precisely what feminism has been waiting for" * TLS *
"Ingeniously funny....In her brilliant, original voice, Moran successfully entertains and enlightens her audience with hard-won wisdom and wit....She doesn't politicize feminism; she humanizes it." * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *

“Well worth reading”

A very interesting take on feminism in the 21st Century.

It was written in a very light hearted and fun way, although it covered some very difficult subject matter and issues.

This book really makes you think about... More
