An important book for any female to read. While it is unlikely that you will agree with everything that is stated, she does make several excellent insights worth listening to.

And if you are a guy reading this (as I was), it's still pretty darn needful. It will give you a much clearer perspective into waters that were always murky.

Not the most pressing current issue, but a vital one nonetheless.

in order to prove our "womanness" we have to march around in bikinis! im sooo pist off right now!

A very powerful book. Totally changed my perspective on how women are treated in today's western society. Minus one star for a somewhat complex style - does not make an easy reading in some instances.
