Intellectual featherweight based on female stereotypes,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: How To Be a Woman (Taschenbuch)
Hm, so this is the 21st century book on feminism? I don't think so...
When Moran talks about women, she uses the word "we" all too frequently and seems to be completely oblivious to cultural and educational differences amongst women. According to her, "we" women are all modelled after a very stereotypical british middle class girl who reads OK! magazine on a regular basis.
Frankly, I don't feel like part of that "we" and I don't want to be. There are actually women out there who have more important things to do than obsessing about looks, fashion, celebrities and relationships. The book makes me want to scream: "Wake up Caitlin, this is the 21st century and women do exist who have contributed a lot more to human culture and development than Lady Gaga (and pssst, this has actually started a long time before the 80ties)!"
A lot of the stuff she writes is very badly researched or not researched at all and only mildly funny. This book would benefit immensely from interchanging "we" with "I" and "women" with "some women with a british middle class cultural background" as it also has very charming sections where Moran gives us an account of her personal life.
But overall Morans attempt to be a self-proclaimed speaker of womenhood comes along in disappointingly inappropriate and presumptous tones. In short, an entertaining, intellectual featherweight with a misleading title.
