As a girl I went to a highly academic all girls school in Oxford and I traversed my teenage years fed up of with feminism The 'girls are better than boys' and 'down with the patriarchy' flavored spiel that underpinned on average at least two of our three weekly assemblies really didn't sit right with me the men in my life were lovely and there was never any suggestion that I would be any less successful than my male counterparts so what was all the fuss about Coupled with the fact that I was surrounded by brilliant minded girls well on their way to academic and professional success I don't think I ever really believed that sexism was a real issue in the UK Simply put I had a privileged upbringingFast forward a couple of years to an internship I did in London with an events company who I won't name and BANG there it was Cold blooded sexismCase number oneManager Can anybody help me use the staple gun to put up these postersAll three female interns raise their handsManager Looks around Sees girls offering to help Turns to only male intern who is busy doing something else Denis come and help me with thisCase number twoBoy intern's job description Organising bar stock arranging schedule for performers stock take security etcGirl intern's job descriptions Stand by the door and look prettyCase number threeI get literally cornered by two very drunk older men while working They ask me to join them after the event I politely decline They corner me in tightly and ask again I politely decline again They keep pressing me for another 10 minutes Eventually I catch the eye of the manager who can clearly see how distressed I am He does nothing Finally the men leave bored of pestering and getting thirsty My manager came up to me five minutes later and asked me What's with the resting bitch face I explain about the two men and he tells me that I should have agreed to go out with themNow I know these aren't the most appalling cases of sexism by any means but this all happened within three days I uit the internship thereafter and it was a total shock to me that this kind of stuff REALLY HAPPENS Sexism is real and it exists EVERYWHERE I know this because it continued to happen in my first full time job in bar where it was especially bad and then later in what my mother would describe as my first 'serious job' for a well respected companyHowever despite this I've still to this day been wary of putting my name next to any feminist material because of the man hating bra burning stigma that so often seems to go hand in hand with descriptions of the average feminist I don't hate men I don't believe 'at home mums' should feel ashamed or like they are somehow lesser women for not having full blown careers and I don't want to walk around bra less wearing tampons as earringsBut I loved about this book and I loved it for the total lack of any of that stuff that I just can't relate to There was no man bashing no listing of all the terrible things the patriarchy has ever done but a simple message women should be able to do anything they want without being judged and they shouldn't be ashamed of the things that go hand in hand with womanhood So if you're a bit of a feminism virgin like me or if you're s

I was expecting the book to be a little larger in size to be honest It arrived with dusty patches on the cover which thankfully went after a uick scrub The book is split up into loads of different sections so that you get to hear from a great array of women Some I agreed with than others Which i suppose is the whole point of the book finding your own feelings on the topic of feminismThe first third of the book I thought was amazing I almost found myself waving the book in the air shouting in agreement The second third was a little less thought provoking and the last third was simply disappointingThere are a number of poems included which I personally didn't take to I found myself skipping a few sections as they were boring and space fillers However over all the book was really enjoyable It was read cover to cover in a few days which is credit to the stories inside Here's hoping my friend loves it as much as I did yes of course I shared the book with the other feminist in my life
