How To Be A Woman

I cannot remember the last time that I enjoyed a book so much (or had the time) that I read it in one day.  Enter “How to be a Woman” by Caitlin Moran.

I had heard the hype surrounding this new feminist text and unfortunately was almost put off it as one commentator concentrated on a chapter entitled Why You Should Have Children.  Another woman telling me to have kids, pah! She can p off!  Thank god a friend insisted that I read it pointing to another chapter called Why you Should Not Have Children.

Witty, informed and cool, Moran is impressive.  Moran puts into words a lot of what we all think but in such a funny way that it is truly fabulous to read.  Can’t put your finger on why Katie Price is annoying and why Lady Gaga is cool? (Both women being middle-class women that take their clothes off for money and attention). Why are lap-dancing bars seedy?  Why do we earn less? Why is it stupid to confuse feminism with man-hating? Why does it cost us money to have pubes (£40 in Hampstead!)

Books, even funny ones, do not make me laugh out loud.. I usually just think HA HA in my head.  This book had me in stitches!
