    Inhaltsangabe

    'Women are told, from birth, that it's our job to be small: physically small, small in our presence, and small in our impact on the world. We're supposed to spend our lives passive, quiet and hungry. I want to obliterate that expectation....'

    Guardian columnist Lindy West wasn't always loud. It's difficult to believe she was once a nerdy, overweight teen who wanted nothing more than to be invisible. Fortunately for women everywhere, along the road she found her voice - and how she found it!

    That cripplingly shy girl who refused to make a sound somehow grew up to be one of the loudest, shrillest, most fearless feminazis on the Internet, making a living standing up for what's right instead of what's cool.

    In Shrill, Lindy recounts how she went from being the butt of people's jokes to telling her own brand of jokes - ones that carry with them serious messages and aren't at someone else's expense. She reveals the obstacles and stereotyping she's had to overcome to make herself heard in a society that doesn't think women (especially fat women and feminists) are or can be funny.

    She also tackles some of the most burning issues of popular culture today, taking a frank and provocative look at racism, oppression, fat shaming, Twitter trolling and even rape culture, unpicking the bullshit and calling out unpalatable truths with conviction, intelligence and a large dose of her trademark black humour.

    'Lindy West is an essential (and hilarious) voice for women. Her talent and bravery have made the Internet a place I actually want to be.' (Lena Dunham)

    A strong woman shares her story in the most humerus, lyrical way

    A strong, self confident woman isn’t always that way. Not from the start. It doesn’t just happen. This book shares such a journey in such a wonderfully written way, it had me laughing out loud while on walks ALONE. This (audio)book made me look insane. But I didn’t care. It had me sending messages with perfectly poignant quotes about periods to my girlfriends. A must read for any woman struggling with her size and / or with confidence. It’s a must read for all women, really. But especially those.
    To the author - I love the honesty in your words. Thank you for sharing.
    Love another smart, funny, beautiful, confident, fat girl, with a kick-ass ass
