3rd wave typical stuff you can get on the internet You can most definitely readintersectional informative content from adiverse range of opinions for free on the internet If I read another mediocre white feminist s book I m going to pull my hair out.I am not really the intended audience for this book I acknowledge This would probably be good for young teens but I found it patronising, as I expect most teens would They told you you need to be thin and beautiful They told you to wear longer skirts, avoid going out late at night and move in groups never accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run ineasily than heels They told you to wear just enough make up to look presentable but not enough to be a slut to dress to flatter your apple, pear, hourglass figure, but not to be too tarty They warned you that if you try to be strong, or take control, you ll be shrill, bossy, a ballbreake They told you you need to be thin and beautiful They told you to wear longer skirts, avoid going out late at night and move in groups never accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run ineasily than heels They told you to wear just enough make up to look presentable but not enough to be a slut to dress to flatter your apple, pear, hourglass figure, but not to be too tarty They warned you that if you try to be strong, or take control, you ll be shrill, bossy, a ballbreaker Of course it s fine for the boys, but you should know your place They told you that s not for girls take it as a compliment don t rock the boat that ll go straight to your hips They told you beauty is on the inside , but you knew they didn t really mean it Well, fuck that I m here to tell you something different This is the book fourteen year old me really needed Younger Me never really understood why things were different if you were a boy, why society told me that I had to dress sexy but in the same breath told me to cover up in case I got raped, why when boys argued back they were making a point but when me and my friends did we were being shrill , why boys were assumed to have had lots of sexual partners but not girls Who were these guys all doing it with All the same few girls Those girls must have been sore.2017 s teenage girls have it worse than my friends and I did in some respects The slut shaming and victim blaming isn t confined to the school canteen or the local ice rink anywe now have the whole of the internet as a platform for making girls feel bad about themselves Luckily for this year s teens, though, they also have Laura Bates on their side, pushing a pin in society s skewed expectations and showing them ways to challenge accepted norms and jolly well fight back.Girl Up is completely unapologetic Either you re a feminist or an arsehole She s right, too If you think that women shouldn t get the same pay as men, you re an arsehole If you think that rape is ever the victim s fault, you re an arsehole If you think that anyone else should have a say over what happens to a girl s body other than the girl herself, you re an arsehole.This book isn t just for teen girls, although that s obviously who it is geared towards and who will get the most out of it It s equally as useful for parents who want to broach talks about sex and attitudes but who don t know where to start, or just if parents want to know the pressures that their daughters are under.Girl Up isn t always an easy read it challenges everything we ve ever been told about ourselves, so why would it be It s super sweary fine by me and deals with topics that as a society we tend to giggle about, like sex, masturbation and what to call our genitals It is also full of compassion and humour dancing vaginas, anyone and zero patronisation.This is an absolute gem of a book.Read it Read it now.5 stars First off, I think it should be made clear that this book is aimed at teenage girls I wasn t clear on that when I initially downloaded it, so I wanted to make that clear in my review so that others reading it won t be surprised like I was.Now, this isn t a criticism, I just think it needs to be clear who the target audience is because this book is divided into 12 chapters giving advice to teenage girls on how to deal with different things they will encounter as they grow up and enter society T First off, I think it should be made clear that this book is aimed at teenage girls I wasn t clear on that when I initially downloaded it, so I wanted to make that clear in my review so that others reading it won t be surprised like I was.Now, this isn t a criticism, I just think it needs to be clear who the target audience is because this book is divided into 12 chapters giving advice to teenage girls on how to deal with different things they will encounter as they grow up and enter society There are chapters on porn, sex, careers, feminism, body image and social media among others, with tips and information about how to deal with these things, many of which can seem intimidating to any teenager I think I would have really appreciated and benefited from this book if someone had given it to me 15 years ago, teenagers these days are lucky that these topics are less taboo andwidely discussed in mainstream media although I have to say I do not envy teenagers now growing up with sexting and Snapchat Ick I now feel incredibly grateful that I didn t have my first mobile phone until I was 15.Reading this off the back of reading Everyday Sexism meant that small parts of this felt a tiny bit repetitive, but still felt relevant to include in the advice provided I also thought the illustrations made it less heavy and the list of resources at the back of the book was a great idea I m not the intended audience for this book, it s meant for much younger people didn t realize it when I picked it up , but If I had read this 10 years earlier I would have benefited quite a lot from it. This is a book, that is essentially a guide for girls, and has gone on the complete assumption that you know nothing regarding the subjects of relationships, bodies, sex and sexism So really, if you know all of this stuff, some women may find this pretty pointless to read, right Wrong This book was rather thought provoking, humorous, but all done in a simple manner, so it may be understood by anyone I found the chapters about feminism, our bodies and women s mental health the most interestin This is a book, that is essentially a guide for girls, and has gone on the complete assumption that you know nothing regarding the subjects of relationships, bodies, sex and sexism So really, if you know all of this stuff, some women may find this pretty pointless to read, right Wrong This book was rather thought provoking, humorous, but all done in a simple manner, so it may be understood by anyone I found the chapters about feminism, our bodies and women s mental health the most interesting Women s bodies are forever receiving criticism We are criticised for being too fat, too thin, too small, too tall, too freckly, not wearing enough make up, wearing too much make up Etc etc My answer to that kind of criticism is a simple one Fuck you At the end of the day, we don t exist to please others Why does the media constantly throw around images of skinny, tall, big breasted models, sending out the incorrect message to girls, that they indeed should strive to look like that Well, it s bullshit Plus, being super skinny, doesn t necessarily mean a better quality of health The average woman in the UK, is 5ft 3 inches tall, and a size 16 What makes me sad, is some girls worry themselves so much about how they look, when they should be enjoying their lives.I feel this book would be particularly useful for a woman approaching adulthood
