Unladylike: A Field Guide to Smashing the Patriarch and Claiming Your Space
Through essential, inclusive, and illustrated explorations of what patriarchy looks like in the real world, authors and podcast hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin blend wild histories, astounding stats, social justice principles, and self-help advice to connect where the personal meets political in the bodies, brains, booty calls, bank accounts, and other confounding facets of modern woman-ing and nonbinary-ing. No space is exempt; no topic taboo. By laying out the uneven terrain of double standards, head games, and handouts patriarchy has manspread across society for ages, Unladylike is here to unpack gender baggage and map out the rightful space of women.
