EVERYONE MUST READ THIS! A truly wonderful read which discusses the problems women still face today and shows sexism in a new light. Read in one day, so brilliant. She writes with honesty and an abrupt frankness which is often missing in many other similar books. She considers the writings of other authors and gains real living accounts of women affected by today's society. This book has a hold on me, i love it! Very eye opening. Should be on the national curriculum to teach both boys and girls the dangers of the media and i particular the sex industry, challenging topics such as pornography, pole dancing, prostitution from a sensitive stance. But the book is not left floating in mid air, she doesn't simply state the facts. The second half of the book entitles 'The New Determinism' suggests reasons why such sexism has returned and contains chapters regarding myths, princesses, stereotypes and changes. Fabulously written, fascinating read.
