How To Be a Woman

Caitlin Moran

How to Be a Woman is Caitlin Moran’s hilarious award-winning non-fiction memoir about what it is like to be a woman in the 21st century. As Caitlin journeys through her early life to motherhood and beyond, she explores modern feminism and demands answers to the questions that every modern woman is asking: Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina? Why does your bra hurt? And why does everyone ask you when you’re going to have a baby?
