New York Times Bestseller
NPR Best Book of 2016
“Sharp and prescient… The appeal of Valenti’s memoir lies in her ability to trace objectification through her own life, and to trace what was for a long time her own obliviousness to it…Sex Object is an antidote to the fun and flirty feminism of selfies and self-help.” — New Republic
Author and Guardian US columnist Jessica Valenti has been leading the national conversation on gender and politics for over a decade. Now, in a darkly funny and bracing memoir, Valenti explores the toll that sexism takes from the every day to the existential.
Sex Object explores the painful, funny, embarrassing, and sometimes illegal moments that shaped Valenti’s adolescence and young adulthood in New York City, revealing a much shakier inner life than the confident persona she has cultivated as one of the most recognizable feminists of her generation.
In the tradition of writers like Joan Didion and Mary Karr, this literary memoir is sure to shock those already familiar with Valenti’s work and enthrall those who are just finding it.

Mixed feelings. Author's honesty is something I do appreciate, yet she is probably not a Feminist I want to become.

I am sorry but it's a white feminist book. The first two parts are about a feminist that screws up and goes through some shit and has barely any consequences in a white world. Valenti at times tries to bring back her Italian heritage which sometimes work, sometimes it doesn't make any sense. Also it seems like sometimes she is kind of bragging about her "wild" life .
But when I got to read the third part, with stories like 'ice' or 'cherry' my heart melted. It was well written and lovely and so accomplished. For this third part I see Jessica Valenti is a good writer, but personally I don't think she is very good at writing feminist anecdotes without losing the real meaning or morals of the story.

Raw autobiography. Some things are hard to read, let alone empathize. But it’s definitely worth it — helps to remember, to not lose sight of the bigger picture of women’s rights.

I started to ask myself: Who would I be if I didn’t live in a world that hated women? I’ve been unable to come up with a satisfactory answer, but I did realize that I’ve long been mourning this version of myself that never existed.
