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.

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.

Fantastic work, Clem! Big fan of yours and found this to have so much heart, honesty, wit, and all 'round inspiration. The only hard part about reading this was the pain it caused, at times, when I would stop and think 'how I wish someone had handed me this book when I was growing up in a world that told me all that mattered was what men thought of me'. It's sad how deep that pain runs, but reading your book was so healing and empowering. In a way, it was just telling me what I think many of us know all along, deep down — that our worth doesn't come from external sources, but from within. Just so happens you put it far more eloquently than I could, and relate to readers in a way that brings much comfort. It's time to look forward, now, and make a better world. From the bottom of my heart: thank you.

I read this for my 5 month old daughter. I want to be the best possible father for her and will recommend she reads it when she is older. I want her to "fight like a girl" to help make this a better world.

Clementine Ford you articulate what we all feel and know with such clarity and honesty, slicing through the fog screen of resentment and misogyny that we all grew up with, to get to the truth. This book is courageous and brilliant and a must read for every girl.

Clementine Ford's book "Fight like a girl" is a 'no holds barred' expose of what it means to be female in the patriarchy. Written with dynamic flair and scathing wit it woke me up and reminded me that the fight continues.

I loved this book, could not, would not put it down. It is an enlightening, shocking, at times mortifying but mostly so very inspiring. All the tools women today need to fight the many fronts of gender inequality. Epic work, Clementine Ford.

Thank you Clementine for raising your voice. In doing so, you give me courage to raise mine and to continue to break free of the incredibly small walls that I was assigned as a girl-child.
