Reviews

Praise for Marta Breen and Jenny Jordahl:

"Marta Breen's witty text and Jenny Jordahl's dynamic art covers topics including reproductive rights, gay marriage and the #meToo movement. International and inclusive in outlook, it's both relevant and inspirational." - Fiona Noble, The Guardian


"It has a giant vagina on a page and a naked Eve on another, and I am here for them! WOOHOO!!" - Fuse 8 Production, School Library Journal



"The narrative style brings home the scale of the injustices done to women while still remaining optimistic and celebrating the fortitude of those who try to change society for the better. The book explains concepts like "the male gaze" with clear, illustrative examples, as of the ubiquity of strip club scenes in films. It challenges the use of the word "genius" as it has been applied to men throughout history. And it does all this while maintaining a sense of humor: at the end, the three "worst sexists" in history are named--with a long list of (dis)honorable mentions." - Foreword Reviews
