Product description

Product Description

'With wit, insight and glorious, righteous rage, Clementine Ford lays out all the ways in which girls and women are hurt and held back, and unapologetically demands that the world do better. A passionate and urgently needed call to arms, Fight Like A Girl insists on our right to be angry, to be heard and to fight. It'll change lives.' Emily Maguire, author of An Isolated Incident

A friend recently told me that the things I write are powerful for her because they have the effect of making her feel angry instead of just empty. I want to do this for all women and young girls - to take the emptiness and numbness they feel about being a girl in this world and turn it into rage and power. I want to teach all of them how to FIGHT LIKE A GIRL. Clementine Ford

Online sensation, fearless feminist heroine and scourge of trolls and misogynists everywhere, Clementine Ford is a beacon of hope and inspiration to thousands of Australian women and girls. Her incendiary debut Fight Like A Girl is an essential manifesto for feminists new, old and soon-to-be, and exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women. Crucially, it is a call to arms for all women to rediscover the fury that has been suppressed by a society that still considers feminism a threat.

Fight Like A Girl will make you laugh, cry and scream. But above all it will make you demand and fight for a world in which women have real equality and not merely the illusion of it.

Clementine Ford gets it. She knows what's up. And the misogynistic men? Well they can't stand it.
Great Read - is the cornerstone feminist text for the modern age.

Clementine Ford intelligently articulates the conditioning we grow up with that inhibits real equality for women. Unfortunately, that seems to attract the wrath of those (like earlier reviewers), for whom women and feminism are dirty words. Fortunately her writing is far more interesting, challenging and amusing than the views of those detractors.

Don't be afraid that you're angry about the status quo, because you have every reason to be. Clementine's theme in this book is so refreshing and affirming. I could relate to everything she said either from personal experience or the empathy of knowing the rest could have easily been me, too. Her unapologetic anger is inspiring, because I'm already angry with the status quo, and while I know I'm not alone, seeing it in a book on shelves is encouraging.

the last two chapters are worth reading the whole book for. the description of rape culture is simultaneously eloquent and aggressive, with so much evidence behind points made that it would be almost impossible to refute. l can't say I agree with Clem on all of her points of view, but like a skilled debater, she predicts the rebuttals and destroys them before you can raise an objection. parts of this book are written a little too like an extended Facebook post rant for me, but this is energising to read. the description of issues women gave is very much from a white western woman perspective with little exploration of women's experience. understandably these are experiences that Clem does not feel comfortable to voice as they're not her own, but providing a platform for those boxes to be heard would be a good consideration for further projects. all in all, worth reading.

This book questions the lack of equality between men and women makes the case that we live in a patriarchal society where engendered violence is blamed on the victims in a bid to keep the status quo. As an Irishwoman living and working in Australia, I was deeply affected by the brutal rape and murder of Jill Meagher but had never given the media coverage much thought. Clementines writing opened my eyes to the media at the time posing the question ''why was she walking home on her own late at night'' shifting the blame onto the victim, instead of acting questions like ''why did this man feel he had the right to violate Jill and then discard her body in a shallow grave like a sweet wrapper after he was finished''. Fight Like a Girl is powerful and confronting reading.

Clementine highlights the majority of male responses to discussions by women in the media of rape culture is some variation of ''Not all men are rapists'' 'Not all men are bad'' "Men can be rape victims too'' ''Why do you hate men'' - rather than an honest acknowledgement of the statistics (95% of all rapes carried out are by men against women, 1 in 5 women will be the victim of a sexual assault in their lifetime and 1 woman a week in Australia, will die at the hands of her male partner).

The author also brings into focus the vitriol expressed by men and women who disagree with her and how they seek to undermine her and to shift focus away from what she is saying. I hope that more men and women read this book and can have honest discussions about its content.
