Description

A feminist manifesto in graphic novel form that denounces the discrimination against and unfairness felt by women from childhood to adulthood. Illustrated in a strikingly minimalist style with images of girls with varied body types and personalities, invites teenagers to question the sexism that surrounds us, in ways that are obvious and hidden, simple and complex. The book’s beginnings as a fanzine shine through in its honesty and directness, confronting the inequalities faced by young women, everyday. And it ends with a line of hope, that with solidarity, girls will hurt less, as they hold each other up with support and encouragement.

Could be better.

I received an ARC from net galley in exchange of an honest review.
It made me sick and tired of reading “girls are sick and tired” throughout the book so the ending was rather refreshing, where the girls were not sick and tired. The book was what the title said, it tells of the events which make girls sick and tired. I would have preferred it if it was more detailed. This was just like skimming through facts I already knew the basics of. The illustrations were good, showing girls of distinct religions, races and culture but it would have been more engaging if they were not monochromatic.
