May 2015 - 9. I finished "How to Be a Woman" by Caitlin Moran today. It was a slow-going read, and I was put off by the writer's tone in the beginning, but eventually, I found myself agreeing with the author's points and thinking that I, too, am a feminist. It really is an unequal world, but I'm really glad I figured out many of the things Moran writes about early (like not spending that much on shoes or bags). However, it was good to read, to realize some obvious things I didn't think of previously - how women have kids just when they are at their most confident and successful, and how this stalls their careers! (At the same time, I read and remembered reading elsewhere, how having a kid makes you realize how much love you have to give, though I wonder whether it can be done otherwise.) I'm curious how this book compares to "We Should All Be Feminists." The main point here is that we should all have some share in the world (more of it).
