Personal and fearless - a call to arms for feminists new, old and as yet unrealised by one of our most outspoken feminist writers.

Online sensation, fearless feminist heroine and scourge of trolls and misogynists everywhere, Clementine Ford is a beacon of hope and inspiration to thousands of Australian women and girls. Her incendiary debut Fight Like A Girl is an essential manifesto for feminists new, old and soon-to-be, and exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women. Crucially, it is a call to arms for all women to rediscover the fury that has been suppressed by a society that still considers feminism a threat.

Fight Like A Girl will make you laugh, cry and scream. But above all it will make you demand and fight for a world in which women have real equality and not merely the illusion of it.

Industry Reviews

'With wit, insight and glorious, righteous rage, Clementine Ford lays out all the ways in which girls and women are hurt and held back, and unapologetically demands that the world do better. A passionate and urgently needed call to arms, Fight Like A Girl insists on our right to be angry, to be heard and to fight. It'll change lives.'
Emily Maguire, author of An Isolated Incident

"A friend recently told me that the things I write are powerful for her because they have the effect of making her feel angry instead of just empty. I want to do this for all women and young girls - to take the emptiness and numbness they feel about being a girl in this world and turn it into rage and power. I want to teach all of them how to FIGHT LIKE A GIRL."
Clementine Ford

Exhaustive, useful, exacting, useful for debates

This book can feel ranty at times. Step back, and consider why. So many times girls are casually made to feel second-rate. So many times, the feminine is considered to be inferior. So many times, women are asked to support society without an iota of thanks, recognition, support or grace. So many times, society 'jokes' that 'the women is to blame'. If we had the power to be responsible for all the ills that society affords to women, wouldn't we use that power for good? Indeed, don't women bring more good than not to society? It's men who kill each other in masses. It's mostly men who kill women & their families because a man had a bad day. It's mostly men who commit domestic violence. It's mostly men who ruin economies with risky behaviour. It's mostly men who are the criminals in the courts & in the jails (the jails are mostly darker skinned men, though). How is it that society then worships men? Women are most often the healers of these societal ills. Where is the gratitude? We're done with being taken for granted. It's time to call it out to society - treating us like poor relations is illogical if you want us to help you out next time. So many examples of mostly men behaving badly have come to light due to the pressure applied to demand good behaviour. Still, so many mostly men behave badly & go unpunished simply because society too often gives (mostly white) men a pass when they grope, are unfaithful, murder their families, become mass shooters ... It's not just white men, but mostly white men. Looki at all these unpunished crime can get dispiriting. Clementine calls out these examples to empower women to demand respect from society & mostly men. We especially demand good behaviour of white men because white men lead the patriarchal society we're in -- for now. Hopefully her next book will illustrate ways to build on #metoo, #enoughisenough, #timesup to sustain the changes we are beginning to see now. And remember, complacency kills comprehensive. Act up
