“Caitlin Moran is the profane, witty and wonky best friend I wish I had. She’s the feminist rock star we need right now.”
—Ayelet Waldman, author of Bad Mother
“Caitlin Moran is so fabulous, so funny, so freshly feminist. I don’t want to be like her—I want to be her.”
 —Peggy Orenstein, author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter
Caitlin Moran puts a new face on feminism, cutting to the heart of women’s issues today with her irreverent, transcendent, and hilarious How to Be a Woman. “Half memoir, half polemic, and entirely necessary,” (Elle UK), Moran’s debut was an instant runaway bestseller in England as well as an Amazon UK Top Ten book of the year; still riding high on bestseller lists months after publication, it is a bona fide cultural phenomenon. Now poised to take American womanhood by storm, here is a book that Vanity Fair calls “the U.K. version of Tina Fey’s Bossypants….You will laugh out loud, wince, and—in my case—feel proud to be the same gender as the author.”

When women find the right person, on the other hand, they just . . . disappear for six months, and then resurface, eyes shiny, and usually about six pounds heavier.
“So what’s he like?” you will say, waiting for the usual cloudburst of things he says and things he does and requests of analysis of what you think it means that his favorite film is Star Wars (“Trapped in adolesence—or in touch with his inner child?”).
But she will be oddly quiet.
“It’s just . . . good,” she will say. “I’m really happy.”
When—four hours later—she gets really drunk, there will be one dazzling frank discussion about how good he is in bed. “Honestly, the size of his penis makes it a borderline medical emergency,” she’ll say with impossible cheeriness.
And then that will usually be the end of the discussion. Usually forever. You stop talking about things when you’ve worked them out. You’re no longer an observer but a participant. You’re too busy for this bullshit.
I am talking about Courtney to everyone. I am a bore. It feels like our relationship is a gigantic puzzle—a huge existential and emotional quiz that, if I apply myself to it enough, I will solve and gain the result of True Love. After all, all the ingredients for us to be the perfect couple are there: he’s a man, I’m a woman, and we live in the same house. All the other stuff—compatibility, courtesy, tenderness, not wanting to kill each other—are little things I can finesse, if I think about them enough.
Caz bears the brunt of my attempts to decipher the answer. I found my phone bills from that era recently, and they show, in their column of neat figures, how I called her every night: 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., 2 a.m., 3 a.m. Hours of talking. It’s amazing how much you can find to say when there’s one big thing you’re too afraid to say: “This isn’t working.”

When Simone de Beauvoir said, “One is not born a woman—one becomes one,” she didn’t know the half of it.

we live in a climate where female pubic hair is considered distasteful, or famous and powerful women are constantly pilloried for being too fat or too thin, or badly dressed, then, eventually, people start breaking into women, and lighting fires in them. Women will get squatters
