Summary

A dramatisation of Caitlin Moran's best seller, the book that brought feminism into the mainstream again.

Adapted and narrated by Caitlin Moran, this brand-new radio adaptation intersperses dramatised scenes from Moran's life (from her teenage years in a crowded council house in Wolverhampton, to setting out as a music journalist, to getting married and having children) with her thoughts on subjects that range from the necessity of big knickers to the experience of giving birth and having an abortion.

Provocative, controversial and very funny - this audiobook is the gateway drug to the feminist resurgence.

A Must Listen

In only one hour and eight minutes Caitlin Moran explores and details the female experience in all aspects of life from sexual harassment, to sexual liberation and contraception, to career and motherhood and the manner in which society forces it’s expectations upon women. Necessary listening.

I wish I'd read this when I was 13.

loved this. wish I'd read it when I needed to, before becoming a woman.
