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.

So is anyone else getting tired of British woman who use the word c**t incessantly? Yes Caitlin, you are SO outrageous! You have fine honed the art of vulgarity. PS, in case your girlfriends or female family members haven't included you in their conversations before, this has been talked about around the water cooler before there were water coolers. PSS, you aren't the first female that has tried to shock the rest of us by proclaiming that you refuse to groom yourself for a man.

The writing was amazing. So many quotable parts. She really tackles a lot of the limits of being a hetero woman. This American says jolly good show. Will definitely read and reference in the future.

Caitlin Moran writes her opinion about how to be a woman without barrier. She doesn't hold back and you really know what she thinks. I related to many parts in the book and was saddened by others.

Makes you sit back question some things woman face daily. Lots of good giggles. Lays it on the line what becoming a woman is like and what we endure as women. Looking forward to reading her next one!
