“Caitlin Moran is the profane, witty and wonky best friend I wish I had. She’s the feminist rock star we need right now.”
—Ayelet Waldman, author of Bad Mother
“Caitlin Moran is so fabulous, so funny, so freshly feminist. I don’t want to be like her—I want to be her.”
—Peggy Orenstein, author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter
Caitlin Moran puts a new face on feminism, cutting to the heart of women’s issues today with her irreverent, transcendent, and hilarious How to Be a Woman. “Half memoir, half polemic, and entirely necessary,” (Elle UK), Moran’s debut was an instant runaway bestseller in England as well as an Amazon UK Top Ten book of the year; still riding high on bestseller lists months after publication, it is a bona fide cultural phenomenon. Now poised to take American womanhood by storm, here is a book that Vanity Fair calls “the U.K. version of Tina Fey’s Bossypants….You will laugh out loud, wince, and—in my case—feel proud to be the same gender as the author.”

    Oh God. I just don’t have a clue. I don’t have a clue how I will ever be a woman.

    EDITOR: Could you just do a quick phoner and ask her? Ask her when she wants to become a mother. I think the piece needs it . . .
    Only with the women, though. I’ve never once been asked to do it with a male interviewee. You never get asked to ask Marilyn Manson if he’s been hanging around in JoJo Maman Bébé, touching tiny booties and crying.

    And there are several reasons why this is bad for everyone—men and women equally. First, in the 21st century, children and teenagers get the majority of their sex education from the Internet. Long before school or parents will have mentioned it, chances are they’ll have seen the lot on the net.
    But it’s not just their sex education—which is a series of useful facts and practicalities, and the basic business of what goes where, or what could go where, if you’re determined enough—that kids are getting from the net. It’s also their sex hinterland. It informs the imagination, as well as the mechanics.
    This is why—however limited, patchy, or centered on Trevor Eve the pornography I scavenged in my teenage years—there was, at least, a balance to all the stuff I was finding—a variety. I had petticoats and spies and woodlands and nuns and threesomes on sun
