Summary

A funny, fact-driven, and illustrated field guide to how to live a feminist life in today's world, from the hosts of the hit Unladylike podcast.

Get ready to get unladylike with this field guide to the whats, whys, and hows of intersectional feminism and practical hell-raising. Through essential, inclusive, and illustrated explorations of what patriarchy looks like in the real world, authors and podcast hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin blend wild histories, astounding stats, social justice principles, and self-help advice to connect where the personal meets political in our bodies, brains, booty calls, bank accounts, and other confounding facets of modern woman-ing and nonbinary-ing. By laying out the uneven terrain of double standards, head games, and handouts patriarchy has manspread across society for ages, Unladylike is here to unpack our gender baggage and map out the space that's ours to claim.

  • Includes a PDF of infographics from the book.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic reviews

"Gritty, wildly informative, and informed: a must-have feminist survival guide for the Trump era." (Kirkus)

“[A] smart, sassy field guide for feminists.... Unapologetic and witty, this work is a great choice for followers of Jennifer Baumgardner and Roxane Gay but will also appeal to young adults and graphic novel fans.” (Library Journal Review)  

“This book is truly special. Not only do the authors present the problems, but they also offer potential solutions and inspirational tools that are so crucial in driving the conversation forward. Their charming tone combined with the incisively detailed breakdown of all the ways in which the patriarchy affects women make Unladylike a must-read.” (Morgan Jerkins, author of This Will Be My Undoing

Awesome

Loved it! Very informative on current and crucial issues. A wonderful tool for anyone new to the Intersectional Feminist movement. Even if you are seasoned I still recommend it. Cristen & Caroline did a wonderful job narrating.

Well written, interesting, funny, informative and inspirational.

To the Authors: Thank you so much for writing this book. Thank you for all the work you put into it. Thank you for taking the time to do all the research, emotional labor, and hard work. And thank you for making this book so fun, funny, informative and inspirational.

I am so glad this book exists - I can’t wait to read it with my son (5yo) and stepdaughter (8yo)- I’ll have to wait a bit, but not too long.

I just finished the book and I was Not ready to “let go”. It’s a bitter sweet feeling that it’s over, but i know I’ll revisit the book many times.

I absolutely recommend this book!
