Summary

This new edition includes an extra chapter on the #MeToo Movement and how women are standing up and speaking out and reclaiming control over the stories told about their lives.

'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.

Genuine, passionate and thought provoking

I won't lie, when this book was suggested to me by my wife I cringed a bit inside. 'I'll just get through it and then I can say I listened and go back to something good' I thought to myself. To say that I was surprised by the book is an understatement. Clementine has poured herself and her not misplaced anger into this book but still managed to keep it funny and not ranting. I'm pretty much in the sweet spot of the privileged white male and, as I suspect is true of many in my situation, I had never seriously thought about the equality of society and had certainly never looked at it through this lens. What was both remarkable and shocking to me was that I have started to see examples of many of the traits and behaviours talked about in this book in day to day life. It has really made me think and think hard about something I would previously have largely dismissed as it wasn't obviously present to me in my day to day life (although I was also wrong about that). Clementine's narration is excellent, passionate, irreverent, funny and not ranty. I am hugely pleased that I listened to this as it has made me really question what I had previously taken for granted. By the end of the book I found myself not, as I had assumed at the start, feeling a sense of relief and diving back into my normal material but rather looking for the audible version of her new book. This is a good book and I would strongly urge other men to listen to it.

Great reader and view of life

I really enjoyed this book. I never thought of myself as a feminist and realized that my view was because I never really took the time to look up the term - feminism, noun: the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes. What woman doesn't want that? If you say 'me', it's because you probably are privileged or protected enough to have not been treated as less than equal. Please don't take that as an insult. I definitely do not intend it to be so. I grew up much like Clementine Ford, in a household which treated each individual with equal love.

The main feeling I had during this book was thankfulness. I am thankful that people like Clementine Ford have the strength and abilities to do the kind of social work needed to fight for the liberation and equality of all. I am also very thankful for the excellent childhood I had full of a family and friends network of people who appreciated me as a person and didn't treat me as less than equal.

inoculation against the status quo

What made the experience of listening to Fight Like a Girl the most enjoyable?

Clementine's raw honesty, humour and determination to hold a space for all of us to get woke

What does Clementine Ford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Always love narration by the author - then I know I'm getting the whole story

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Are you brave enough? If not, why not?

Where ever you are is ok, but for f***'s sake be thinking about it

Any additional comments?

Thank you and look forward to the next one x

Phenomenally heartbreaking and rousing!

I recommend this book to all women. This eloquently written book has helped me to to find my voice, when for so long I lacked the ability to fully articulate what I felt and experienced in the world. Thank you for all the other Clementines fighting the endless battle for equality while dealing with the deranged spotlight cast on them for doing so.
