Description

Already an international best seller, this empowering survival guide provides no-nonsense advice on sex, social media, mental health, and sexism that young women face in their everyday lives - from one of the emerging leaders in the feminist movement. They told you that you need to be thin and beautiful. They told you to wear longer skirts, avoid going out late at night, and move in groups - never accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run in more easily than heels. They told you to wear just enough makeup to look presentable but not enough to be a slut, to dress to flatter your apple, pear, hourglass figure, but not to reveal too much. They warned you that if you try to be strong or take control, you'll be shrill, bossy, a ballbreaker. Of course it's fine for the boys, but you should know your place. They told you "that's not for girls" - "take it as a compliment" - "don't rock the boat" - "that'll go straight to your hips". They told you "beauty is on the inside", but you knew they didn't really mean it. Well, screw that. Laura Bates is here to tell you something else. Hilarious, bold, and unapologetic, Girl Up exposes the truth about the pressures surrounding body image, the false representations in media, the complexities of sex and relationships, the trials of social media, and all the other lies society has told us.
