Publisher's Summary

A collection of hilarious personal essays and political commentary from the charming, feminist, and wickedly funny creator and host of the Throwing Shade podcast and TV Land show.

"Am I allowed to do this?

Most of my decisions in life have been preceded by this question. 

Some of the rules women are expected to follow are obvious...don't: be loud/muscular/good at math...do: be helpful/have babies/smile. Some are ambiguous and subjective." 

Erin Gibson has a plan for women to make our future the one Beyonce already thinks we have. In Feminasty - titled after her nickname on Throwing Shade - she has written a collection of make-you-laugh-until-you-cry essays that expose the hidden rules that make life as a woman harder and deconstructs them in a way that's bold and funny and provocative. 

Whether it's shaming women for having their periods, allowing them into STEM fields but never treating them like they truly belong, or dictating strict rules for how they should dress in every situation, Erin feels that oppression is both organized and chaotic, purposeful and unintentional. That doesn't make it impossible to dismantle, it just means we have to recognize and destroy the problems one by one. In Feminasty, she will start the revolution.

An audiobook that needs to be listened

This book shares facts that every woman should know. If you're a man; then you most definitely need to listen to this

With amazing humor the author puts the challenges and unjust treatments of women. From tampons to the positions of power that woman have had to fight for through out history

Highly recommend it

love!

I love Throwing Shade and so I could not wait to pick up this book! It did not disappoint. It is timely and reflective of the position of women in the world, expresses outrage and upset with the state of our society, yet makes one feel optimistic and not completely depressed and overwhelmed. Also, I am so glad that it was voiced by the author herself, wouldn't have wanted it any other way! Hilarious!

Erin Gets It

I've now listened to this book twice and will surely listen several more times. Erin is a thrillingly smart, aware, and funny lady who has written one of the best books on/for/guiding feminism there has ever been. There are so many moments in this book where I literally laughed out loud, while, at the same time, being thunked with hard knowledge that changed my life.

As a die-hard fan of Erin and an enthusiastic listener of Throwing Shade, I really hoped this book would be good. It is. Erin positively soars as a debut author, and her performance of the audiobook is bonkers. Everyone involved in the Feminasty book should be ridiculously proud.
