Book learning #76 How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran.

Alright fellas. I know. Hold it.

Frau Random Doubt got this book for Christmas, after she had read it, it spent some time on the bedroom floor and before you know it, I'm reading it.

Excuses apart, this was a thought provoking, modern, intelligent and mostly witty (sometimes hilarious) account of feminism.

That's right. Feminism.

Like all big ideas/movements/struggles, feminism has it's differing perspectives and it's not my place to go into them here.

Moran puts the ideas into perspective and adds a sprinkle of light onto some dark areas.
