'If Caitlin Moran's How To Be A Womanis the fun-filled manual for female survival in the 21st century, everyday sexism is its more politicised sister' (Independent on Sunday).

After experiencing a series of escalating sexist incidents, Laura Bates started theeveryday sexism projectand has gone on to write 'a pioneering analysis of modern day misogyny' (Telegraph).

After an astounding response from the wide range of stories that came pouring in from all over the world, the project quickly became one of the biggest social media success stories of the internet.

From being harassed and wolf-whistled at on the street, to discrimination in the workplace and serious sexual assault, it is clear that sexism had become normalised. But Bates inspires women to lead a real change and writes this 'extremely powerful book that could, and should, win hearts and minds right across the spectrum' (Financial Times).

Often shocking, sometimes amusing and always poignant, everyday sexism is a protest against inequality and a manifesto for change. It's 'a game-changing book, a must-read for every woman' (Cosmopolitan).

'Admirable and culturally transferable. "A storm is coming," writes Bates. After reading this book you'll hope so' (Independent).Welcome to the fourth wave of feminism.

Another whiney book on something ill defined in these modern times. You see, it is not sexist to be against female politicians both directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of thousands, and hundreds of thousands, of innocents - - it is not only sexist but blatantly amoral to excuse such horrendous and diabolical behavior.
Thus people who wish to differentiate between pols like Trump, so far no deaths on his docket and Hillary Rodham Clinton --- deaths in the military coup and aftermath in Honduras, deaths in the overthrow of the democratically elected president of Ukraine, deaths in destabilized North African countries, et cetera, et cetera. [Not to mention working for FTAs which destroy lives and occupations by offshoring hundreds of thousands and millions of jobs!]
It is sexist when pathetic NPR show hosts, like John Hockenberry, prattle on about how everything will be better - - in government and on Wall Street - - when women are in charge [FYI, moronic John, many women were involved in the global economic meltdown, and the few who wouldn't take part, like their male counterparts, were summarily fired [Keysha Cooper at WaMu - - Carmen Segarra and others, et cetera]!
