Description-

  • 'This rallying cry will persuade you to battle for true equality' Stylist

    An incendiary debut taking the world by storm, Fight Like A Girl is an essential manifesto for feminists new, old and soon-to-be.

    Online sensation and fearless feminist heroine, Clementine Ford is a beacon of hope and inspiration to thousands of women and girls. In the wake of Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo campaign, Ford uses a mixture of memoir, opinion and investigative journalism to expose just how unequal the world continues to be for women.
    Personal, inspiring and courageous, Fight Like A Girl is an essential manifesto for feminists new, old and soon-to-be. The book is a call-to-arms for women to rediscover the fury that has been suppressed by a society that, despite best efforts, still considers feminism to be a threat.
    Urgently needed, Fight Like a Girl is a passionate, rallying cry that will awaken readers to the fact they are not alone and there's a brighter future where men and women can flourish equally – and that's something worth fighting for.

    September 1, 2018

    With just the right balance of sarcasm and straightforward, informational content, writer and broadcaster Ford's first book is one people need to read in the wake of the MeToo movement. The author defines systemic misogyny and how we internalize it, then breaks down topics such as abortion, eating disorders, mental illness, rape culture, and the enduring stereotyping of feminism as a movement based on man-hating, which delegitimizes the real anger we can and should feel toward those who violate women's and girls' rights. VERDICT Ford's quick, provocative read will appeal to anyone who desires a better understanding of the complex, intersectional issues so often lumped into phrases such as rape culture. Read alongside Susan Faludi's Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women and Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards's Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism, and the Future.--Emily Bowles, Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison

    In her ruthless debut essay collection, Australian activist and agitator Ford presents a feminist manifesto for the 2018 woman and her allies. Ford rails against the most contemporary issues of misogyny, from rape culture to partner violence to internet harassment. Blending memoir with critical analysis, she creates an intimate, though universal, call to arms. As a prominent feminist, Ford has seen her fair share of venom from readers online. As they've begged her to explain why she so deeply hates men, Ford uses this book to explore why men so viciously hate women. She meditates on society's insistence that women physically shrink themselves, how society polices the uterus, and how society allows the female body to be defiled over and over with few or no repercussions for the perpetrator?and all this in a society still predominantly run by men. Ford's book is a galvanizing tour de force, begging women to never give up on the most radical act of all: loving themselves wholly and completely in a world that doesn't love them back.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
