There were lines of sheer brilliance in this. I did a lot of highlighting. But a lot of the stories featured people who were so unlike able, it was hard to get really invested in it. Mon Plaisir was my favorite.

Tina Fey
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

“Some women make it look so easy, the way they cast ambition off like an expensive coat that no longer fits.”
Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

“But now it seems possible that the truth about getting older is that there are fewer and fewer things to make fun of until finally there is nothing you are sure you will never be.”
Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation

Caitlin Moran
“You can tell whether some misogynistic societal pressure is being exerted on women by calmly enquiring, ‘And are the men doing this, as well?’ If they aren’t, chances are you’re dealing with what we strident feminists refer to as ‘some total fucking bullshit’.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman
