Girl up : kick ass, claim your woman card, and crush everyday sexism by Laura Bates( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They told you that you need to be thin and beautiful. They told you to wear longer skirts, avoid going out late at night, and move in groups--never accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run in more easily than heels. They told you to wear just enough make-up to look presentable but not enough to be a slut; to dress to flatter your apple, pear, hourglass figure, but not to reveal too much. They warned you that if you try to be strong, or take control, you'll be shrill, bossy, a ballbreaker. They told you 'that's not for girls'--'take it as a compliment'--'don't rock the boat'--'that'll go straight to your hips.' They told you 'beauty is on the inside, ' but you knew they didn't really mean it. Well, screw that. Laura Bates is here to tell you something else. Girl Up exposes the truth about the pressures surrounding body image, the false representations in media, the complexities of sex and relationships, the trials of social media, and all the other lies society has told us."

They told you you need to be thin and beautiful. They told you to wear longer skirts, avoid going out late at night and move in groups, never accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run in more easily than heels. They told you to wear just enough make-up to look presentable but not enough to be a slut; to dress to flatter your apple, pear, hourglass figure, but not to be too tarty. They warned you that if you try to be strong, or take control, you'll be shrill, bossy, a ballbreaker. Of course it's fine for the boys, but you should know your place. They told you that's not for girls, take it as a compliment, don't rock the boat, that'll go straight to your hips. They told you 'beauty is on the inside', but you knew they didn't really mean it. Well screw that. I'm here to tell you something else. Hilarious, jaunty and bold, this book exposes the truth about the pressures surrounding body image, the false representations in media, the complexities of a sex and relationships, the trials of social media and all the other lies they told us
Misogynation : the true scale of sexism by Laura Bates( Book )

4 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing attention to both hidden and blatant sexist acts and attitudes, Laura Bates has exposed the startling truth behind misogyny in our society: systemic, ingrained and ignored. From Weinstein to Westminster, a torrent of allegations of sexual harassment and assault have left us reeling. 100 years since some women were first given the right to vote, we are still struggling to get to grips with the true extent of gender inequality that continues to flourish in our society. In this collection of essays, originally published in the Guardian, Laura Bates uncovers the sexism that exists in our relationships, our workplaces, our media, in our homes and on our streets, but which is also firmly rooted in our lifelong assumptions and in the actions and attitudes we explain away, defend and accept
