How To Be A Woman: by the Brilliant Caitlin Moran

Want to figure out if you're a feminist or not? According to Caitlin Moran here's the way to do it:

"Put your hand in your pants.

1. Do you have a vagina?
2. Do you want to be in charge of it?

If you said yes to both, then congratulations! You're a feminist!"

Her book is hilarious, crude, slightly uncouth, real, to the point and just bloody BRILLIANT.

She's made me feel more comfortable about talking about masturbation, abortions and hating heels. And she's also potentially terrified the shit of me at the thought of giving birth.... (But it did go well second time round for her!)

It seems to be for a specific generation, say from 20- 40, because my younger sister (18) didn't find it particularly humourus and nor did my mother/aunt/uncle.

Moral of the book: Masturbate, forget about Brazilian waxes and high heels, shout your feminist views LOUD AND PROUD, don't feel like you need the latest Prada to 'fit in' and... BE THE TYPE OF WOMAN YOU WANT TO BE, not who you think you should be.

Go buy it.. NOW!
