A Book for Her – Bridget Christie

Part autobiography, part explanation of the genesis of ‘A Bic for Her’ and ‘An Ungrateful Woman’, part explanation of what feminism means to her.

Greater than the sum of its parts, a wonderful book. Funny, thought-provoking, anger-provoking.

The first half of chapter 10 where she writes about FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) is one of the most furiously angry pieces of writing I have read in a long time.

I defy anyone to read this and not look at the world differently after, which is the same affect as the shows mentioned above.

The second greatest comedian working in the world today.
