Summary
A friend recently told me that the things I write are powerful for her because they have the effect of making her feel angry instead of just empty. I want to do this for all women and young girls - to take the emptiness and numbness they feel about being a girl in this world and turn it into rage and power. I want to teach all of them how to fight like a girl. Clementine Ford..Online sensation, fearless feminist heroine and scourge of trolls and misogynists everywhere, Clementine Ford is a beacon of hope and inspiration to thousands of Australian women and girls. Her incendiary debut Fight Like A Girl is an essential manifesto for feminists new, old and soon-to-be, and exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women. Crucially, it is a call to arms for all women to rediscover the fury that has been suppressed by a society that still considers feminism a threat...Fight Like A Girl will make you laugh, cry and scream. But above all it will make you demand and fight for a world in which women have real equality and not merely the illusion of it
Summary
Through a mixture of memoir, opinion and investigative journalism, Fight Like A Girl exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women. Using first person narrative, empirical evidence, media clippings, anecdotal storytelling and the words of young women themselves, Clementine Ford has written an essential companion for feminists new, old and as yet unrealised that will give them new language to articulate their rage and frustrations. FLAG will make you laugh, scream and cry. Above all, it will be a call to arms for women young and old to rediscover the fury that has been suppressed by a society that still considers feminism a threat
