Abstract:

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.
