i really enjoyed this book. Some parts were funnier than others, but I giggled a bit and appreciated her humour. I learnt things I didn't know and felt like my eyes were opened to some feminist food for thought I hadn't considered earlier . Sarah explores some heavy concepts in a conversational, informative way. My only real criticism, and I don't know if Sarah Pascoe will ever read this review herself but I think it's important to say this - she defines sex as a meeting of two equals, and yet later in the book makes several references (sometimes contexually historical) to sex, when it is actually child rape. A person who cannot consent (due to age, vulnerability, capacity, unconsciousness etc) cannot engage or be engaged in sex. I know that morality and legality is often viewed through a localised lense, but it still sat very strangely with me that while she made some AMZING points about sexual assault, rape, and associated injustices, that she still referred to a men 'having sex' with their child brides. Language is so important.
That being said, I would definitely recommend to others, and read some paragraphs aloud to my partner as I went.
