Product description

Review

We dare you to find a more relatable book title. Comedian and Throwing Shade podcast host Erin Gibson gave us the gift of this collection of omg-I'm-literally-dying level hilarious essays that tackle the 'hidden rules that make life as a woman harder.' Not only will you learn sh*t, but you'll also laugh a lot. What could be better than that?"
--Betches.com

"Gibson uses her very presence as an act of defiance-she's a loud Southern lady with size-11 feet who grew up poor white trash-and readers will be grateful that she can't keep her mouth shut."--Booklist

"The rhetorical purposes of the work are clear: Gibson seeks to lift up women at every opportunity, especially by changing the gender balance in political power."--Kirkus Reviews


"Erin Gibson--one-half of the crazy-popular Throwing Shade podcast--is as sharply funny as she is unabashedly feminist. Damn smart, too. Each of the essays in this book is an eye-opening lesson in how the patriarchy is working against us, and how to fight back. #themoreyouknow"--Cosmopolitan


"In her edgy, fierce, and funny debut essay collection, comedian and 'Throwing Shade' podcast cohost Gibson serves up scathing wit and graphic observations on the 'insane ways people try to control' women...The result is a bubbly acid bath of clever invective encouraging her fellow women to make the world a better place."--Publisher's Weekly


"Feminasty is laugh-out-loud funny. But it'll also make you seriously mad. Erin Gibson, co-host of the podcast Throwing Shade, sheds light on niche women's issues that aren't at the forefront of the news but desperately need our attention."--HelloGiggles.com


"Gibson blazes across the page like a firework shooting over a landscape of ALL CAPS and italics for emphasis...Feminasty is a Best-Friend Book. Reading it feels like having a feminist hype-woman in your corner. She's taking patriarchal bullies apart with the catty, flippant venom they deserve. She's pouring you a glass of something bubbly. She's making you laugh til it runs out your nose."--Portland Mercury

About the Author

Emmy-nominated Southern loudmouth Erin Gibson is an expert at mixing social commentary, political satire, and vagina jokes into neat little comedy packages. Based in Los Angeles, she's one half of the Throwing Shade empire, which includes an award winning political absurdist comedy podcast, international live touring show, the Funny or Die web series and a TV Land late night show. She developed her social commentary chops as the host of "Modern Lady" and sharpened them writing and directing political sketches for Funny or Die, where you've seen her impersonate terrible women like Michele Bachmann, Megyn Kelly, Michelle Duggar and Ivanka Trump. She also created the long running Emmy-nominated "Gay of Thrones" starring her real-life hair stylist, Jonathan Van Ness. Feminasty is her debut book of comedic essays.
