Here comes the book that needs to be on every woman's to-read list.
A collection of essays written by very different women, from very different backgrounds, that blend and flow together amazingly well.
Each essays explores a word, that all of us as women collectively, have been called at one point or another in our lives. Bossy, loud, cute, lucky, fat... Words have power, and those who wield them even more so. But these women are trying to reclaim that power. Some them have already done it and are encouraging other women do the same. Some are still trying and failing under the world's expectations and their own fears. But all of them tell their stories, raw and unapologetic. No matter how far they have gotten. No matter how low they stooped before they reclaimed their power.
The essays are powerful and inspiring. Some are enraging. There were maybe two or three essays to which I could not connect, but those were very rare and in between.
My favorites were "lucky" and "effortless" among many, many others.
The book finishes on a strong note with a dictionary of words which woman should not be called, and their descriptions.
Read this. It's important.
