How to be a Woman

Author:

Availability: Out Of Stock

At a time when feminism is almost frowned upon, even by women, Moran sets off to argue that there is a feminist in every woman, and she does so using thoroughly entertaining prose. How To Be A Woman tackles all those aspects that constantly hold back women from being themselves and living a life. Highly influenced and outraged by the sexism and differential treatment faced by women in all walks of life, Moran presents a spread of 16 chapters that comprise interesting arguments and shocking revelations. The author starts the book with a rather funny story of her 13th birthday, and cruises through chapters asking quintessential questions about motherhood, the workplace, fat, love, and popular entertainment. In the chapter that discusses feminism, Moran accounts how even the modern woman with her right to the pill and the vote, is not liberated in the true sense of it. And in one of the subsequent chapters, she wonders why wearing heels or shorter pants should define the attractiveness of any woman and talks about the fashion industry feeding on this unhealthy social conditioning. The book further examines a wide range of topics such as getting Brazilians, using Botox and stalling baby questions. It also very sensitively takes on the concerns and laws around abortion and sexism that are bogging down today's women and their right to true freedom. With her wit, verve and insight, Moran challenges the so-called liberal society's backsliding attitude towards women and feminism. First published in 2011, How To Be A Woman has sold more than 400,000 copies in about 16 countries. It has also won the Galaxy National Book Award and the Irish Book Award.
