How to Be a Woman Audiobook

How to Be a Woman

Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them? Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother.

Publisher's Summary

Though they have the vote and the Pill and haven't been burned as witches since 1727, life isn't exactly a stroll down the catwalk for modern women. They are beset by uncertainties and questions: Why are they supposed to get Brazilians? Why do bras hurt? Why the incessant talk about babies? And do men secretly hate them?

Caitlin Moran interweaves provocative observations on women's lives with laugh-out-loud funny scenes from her own, from the riot of adolescence to her development as a writer, wife, and mother. With rapier wit, Moran slices right to the truth - whether it's about the workplace, strip clubs, love, fat, abortion, popular entertainment, or children - to jump-start a new conversation about feminism. With humor, insight, and verve, How To Be a Woman lays bare the reasons why female rights and empowerment are essential issues not only for women today but also for society itself.

    "Great"

    A autobiography that is easy to listen to throughout can be hard to find. Caitlin Moran is witty, revealing, and a smart critic to boot.

    "Great book, too loud"

    Great book, interesting and very funny.
    Caitlin reads it with flare but it gets too loud at certain points, with her shouting certain parts. While it was funny and enjoyable, I constantly had to change the volume of my device so as not to get a pierced eardrum. Be aware of this if you listen with earphones.

    "I'll listen again"

    I quite enjoyed this book. Caitlin is humorous and enthusiastic in her reading. Although there were some aspects that made me cringe, I continued through it and am very glad I did. It is sensible feminism and gave me a lot to think on.

    "Loved it!"

    "HILARIOUS and a Eye opener"

    Absolutly loved it. The author read it amazingly, the way I knew it was how it was supposed to be read. Definitely opened my eyes and is relatable. I will without a doubt listen to this again. I'm even going to buy copies for my family.

    "Phenomenal"

    What a pleasure! Smart, progressive, interesting, funny, and read by the author--read by an author who is a great reader, and who has a fun accent. I can't wait to listen to How To Build A Girl.
