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.

How can a person view the world from such a parochial perspective? Miss. Valenti writes as though no double-standards exist to the detriment of men; that somehow, a woman's sexual value decreasing as she ages, in contrast to (some) men's sexual value increasing as he ages, is an intentional product of society aimed at disparaging women, when it is simply nature. Is he seriously attacking nature? This book amounts to little more than querulous whining about trivial matters which she merely perceives as being problematic. Bonkers.

Valenti is a liberal feminist. The problem I have with some feminist writers (Ariel levy, Natasha Walters) is that they judge other women on their own standards. Valenti does not. Instead she critiques the society that oppresses us. An interesting book discussing many points I was already angry about and also raising issues I hadn't even noticed ... like the vagina tax... Wtf?!

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.
