Thursday's Tidbit {good read}

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Have you guys heard of this book, How to Be a Woman? I can't wait to read it. Author, Caitlin Moran joins a "hit parade from the past 40 or so years of feminist writing [tackling]: sexuality, marriage, division of housework, female body fat, abortion, and sexism in the workplace. As Moran notes, however, feminism seems to be in remission among the young: all the more reason to revisit — with gusto — some of the familiar battleground issues.

Moran, who proudly cops to being a 'strident feminist,' offers this challenge to those female readers on the fence about feminism: 'Here,' Moran says, 'is the quick way of working out if you're a feminist. Put your hand in your underpants. a) Do you have a vagina? And b) Do you want to be in charge of it?'
If you said 'yes' to both questions, Moran says, 'then congratulations! You're a feminist.'"
Sold? Me too! Read the full Fresh Air review here
