An insight into a rather depressing world
on 2 December 2013
As a woman of similar age to Melissa Benn, who also has two teenage daughters, I could quite imagine sitting down with her and discussing these issues over a cup of tea. Her gentle style leads you through the experiences of a young woman today, providing facts, figures, interviews and personal anecdotes that, on occasions, make rather depressing reading. At the end I was left wondering what I could tell my daughters to keep them inspired and motivated. Benn doesn't touch upon the role of religion in subjugating women with its antiquated belief system or how women can undermine each other - behaviour that often starts in the playground. However, if you want to keep up to date with the issues your daughter will be facing in 2013, its worth the read.
