by Leigh Anne Jasheway

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
What's a girl to do when it's the 21st Century, but the patriarchy wants us to sit down, shut up, and look pretty (or, if you're over 30, disappear)? If you're anything like the author, you want to laugh and yell (and not necessarily in that order). Join in this hysterical look at fights we're still fighting, whether for equal pay or pants with pockets.
