NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The book that launched a feminist revolution—the hilarious memoir/manifesto from Caitlin Moran, "the UK''s answer to Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and Lena Dunham all rolled into one" (Marie Claire).

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.

Caitlin Moran''s debut book,How to Be a Woman, was an instantNew York Timesbestseller.How to Build a Girlis her first novel since the one she wrote at fourteen, which doesn''t count.
