Personal and fearless a call to arms for feminists new, old and as yet unrealised by one of our most outspoken feminist writers.

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.

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.

'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

  • Disappointing

    by on

    This book was not what I expected from the previous reviews. Overall disappointing.

  • A must read for any woman or parent of a daughter

    by on

    I was given this book by my father because he thought i'd like it. He couldn't be more right, from the moment i started the book I couldn't put it down until I finished. A thoroughly thought provoking essay on the values we place on girls and teach them to place on themselves in Australian culture and the consequences this has to women's self esteem and self development. Clementine's words made me think, they made me angry, they made me talk to other women about our value system and they made me make a new year's resolution to do my best to lift other women up rather than tear them down with gossip and slander. I've recommended this book to many of my friends.
