There's remarkably little discussion about feminism these days. Most people think we have full equality. Yet 88% of FTSE 100 board members are men, to quote just one statistic; and as Velenti points out we have very different ways of judging mean and women.

For a lot of people, feminism is either a dirty word, or something attained by women getting into management.

I gave this book to my 21 year old daughter, in part to conpensate for this lack of public debate; and she loved it. Valenti can communicate to younger readers in a clear and direct way. This is an easily digested book that highlights society's double standards.

I have long been a fan of Valenti's writing and feminist books in general, and this addition to my collection is no exception. Again, Valenti held my attention cover to cover whilst hitting me with the facts and figures in a non-preachy way. Her style is funny, coherent and entertaining whilst informative. Valenti manages to discuss global gender issues and feminism in a way that is user-friendly and direct. I value this book as a better educational tool than anything I have ever encountered within the school system or the mass media.

I would reccommend this book to ANYBODY as essential reading, and have recently given copies to friends. Don't delay just add it to your basket.

I would especially reccommend this book to younger students/readers who want a sort of 'introductory guide' to modern sexism and patriarchy.

One of the most important books ever written! Think I'm exaggerating. Just read it. Jessica Valenti is a heroine. This is for every woman in the world. Regardless of sexuality, class, race, nationality and religion, this book speaks to all of us. We are all powerful people and Jessica Valenti shines a bright beacon of light on the appalling situation of women everywhere. This is the time to do something about the way we are constantly belittled, abused and generally wronged by men and Jess Valenti shows us that we can! Quite frankly this is also for the misogynist, sexist men out there who treat women in the ways described in this gem of a book. Read it Guys.

This book came in excellent condition. I have been interested in the concept of feminism for some time and this book stood out to me as it appeared to answer questions about double standards, however I found the swearing in this book almost discredited it. I personally can't stand swearing in published works, however for those who do not find this a problem will almost certainly enjoy this book, it was just from my viewpoint I find it quite immature and the author trying to make a point that she was a woman and could swear therefore making it feel very unnatural.
