really liked it

Wow! What a surprise. Found this slim book while searching my parents' shelves for a non-decaying, hypoallergenic book.

A ferocious and detailed account of how society socializes girls into "feminine" roles. Spar yet powerful writing encapsulates one girl's "maturation" into a wife and mother. Not a pretty site. A stunning indictment of insidious patriarchal systems. Yet another book to remind me why I never wanted to get married or have children.
