“Guys, we’re worried about you.”
The Book Fairies in the UK have been sharing copies of Caitlin Moran’s new book What About Men? See #TBFWhatAboutMen on instagram for all the amazing locations the fairies found!
About the book:
As any feminist who talks about the problems of girls and women will know, the first question you will ever be asked is ‘But what about MEN?’ After eleven years of writing bestsellers about women and dismissing this question, having been very sure that the concerns of feminism and men are very different things, Caitlin Moran realised that this wasn’t quite right, and that the problems of feminism are also the problems of, yes, men.
So, what about men? Why do they only go to the doctor if their wife or girlfriend makes them? Why do they never discuss their bits with each other – but make endless jokes about their balls? What is the internet doing for young men? Is their fondness for super-skinny jeans leading to an epidemic of bad mental health? Are men allowed to be sad? Are men allowed to lose? Have Men’s Rights Activists confused ‘power’ with ’empowerment’? And is Jordan B Peterson just your mum – but with some mad theory about a lobster?
In this book, Caitlin intends to answer all this and more – because if men haven’t yet answered the question ‘What About Men?’, it’s going to be down to a busy woman to do it.
We love hearing from people who find the books we share (if that sounds like YOU then please let us know by using #ibelieveinbookfairies or email firstname.lastname@example.org!) and today we received quite a few messages! Here are two of our favourites and we hope you ENJOY Caitlin’s new book!
