How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
This is a light-hearted 21st century twist on Germaine Greer’s earlier tomes on feminism. It’s frank, funny and serious at the same time. It highlights some things that have changed for the better and some more modern concerns that do nothing to advance equality for women at all! This is one lady who would never be stupid enough to burn her bra!! Don’t make the mistake of thinking this is just a book for women…a couple of men who have read it seem to have enjoyed it as much as I did.

I second what Ribs has said about this book. Apart from everything Ribs said it is also very educational. The thinking's of a modern woman. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would recommended it to both sexes; even the bastard portion that have got their head so far up their arse and think they are so superior (i.e. male chauvinist Wayne Kerr's).

Caitlin Moran is very good Journalist and I enjoy reading her column in the Times.
I read part of her Book ‘How to be a Woman’ when it was serialized some time ago in The Times .
It is indeed very amusing and written in the language of today and she is in the right environment to get her Books published.
For me personally it was not educational as the subject matter of the Book has been published many times, as long as forty years ago in the best Women’s Magazines and discussed in a serious manner. My friends and I always discussed the contents of this book and any female issues, so we do not need a book as well.
For the uninitiated they would possibly learn something, but would they really be any the wiser.
Men will never fully understand women as they are apt to change like chameleons.
Is there nothing sacred anymore? There is plenty of profanity.
Surely with the all female body plastered all over the internet should be enough without wanting to enter her very soul and mind too, and the various things that females do with their person.
I think there should be some mystery. Otherwise it must be boring if a couple knows what their partner is going to say before they speak. I must be like living with a doppelganger.
Also I think being bored encourages affairs.
No! You can’t teach a Grandmother to suck eggs!!
