5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter cried, 7 May 2012
This review is from: How To Be a Woman (Paperback)
Because my daughter cried at a bus stop in the pouring rain, at the bit about Moran's first really frightful birth, and thought of me and texted me and thanked me for having her, I read it too. And I am glad I did because I found so much to relate to - particularly 'brain in a jar' - literally having no clue how to be a woman, all information from a very wide range of reading matter, from the Beano to Charles Dickens via early Barabara Cartland (the SM ones), Fanny Hill and the unsoftened Grimm, and all without stabilisers or filters of any kind (10 years of single sex boarding school). So GLAD (there you are! CAPS!) that someone else says this stuff. My daughter has no problems with being a feminist (she has converted many from 'meh' to 'me too' just by quietly explaining), and with me being a feminist, and with my particular brand 'everyone needs to grow up' - I have sons too, and they need the same thing - being all part of the human race (not some weird offshoot, for display purposes only). Anyway, thank you Moran, for articulating it all. Strident, that's me.
