A fiercely feminist call to arms
This attempt to keep women in their place is deftly captured in the book
The authors write a convincing teen exploring the complex, frequently sexist social norms that girls and women navigate daily
Young people starting to explore social justice will find this engaging work a stepping stone on the way to heavier fare such as Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist or Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale
