Publisher's Summary

A collection of hilarious personal essays and political commentary from the charming, feminist, and wickedly funny creator and host of the Throwing Shade podcast and TV Land show.

"Am I allowed to do this?

Most of my decisions in life have been preceded by this question. 

Some of the rules women are expected to follow are obvious...don't: be loud/muscular/good at math...do: be helpful/have babies/smile. Some are ambiguous and subjective." 

Erin Gibson has a plan for women to make our future the one Beyonce already thinks we have. In Feminasty - titled after her nickname on Throwing Shade - she has written a collection of make-you-laugh-until-you-cry essays that expose the hidden rules that make life as a woman harder and deconstructs them in a way that's bold and funny and provocative. 

Whether it's shaming women for having their periods, allowing them into STEM fields but never treating them like they truly belong, or dictating strict rules for how they should dress in every situation, Erin feels that oppression is both organized and chaotic, purposeful and unintentional. That doesn't make it impossible to dismantle, it just means we have to recognize and destroy the problems one by one. In Feminasty, she will start the revolution.

Nailed It

Absolutely amazed how much women’s history research and articles from way back when you discussed. You are my new favorite feminist role model. Keep on kicking the patriarchy in it’s ass Erin!

Erin Gibson for president

I was stuck in traffic for many hours and decided to give this listen a go. I did not regret it. Erin Gibson delivers a laugh-out-lout, super-smart and honest book about the wrongs of the patriarchy and everyday discrimination we need to get rid off. Listen to this book, you will never be bored and love all of it. And walk away a little smarter and more empowered.

Delightful Diatribes

I have to admit that, prior to reading this, I did not know of Erin Gibson, and now I am so glad that I do! Although the cover is cheeky, her jokes are searingly funny, and the delivery superb, but Gibson manages to make some depressing AF information not only digestible, but enjoyable.

This is a great “primer” for those who are new to feminism, younger women would do well to get on this, bc they’re the ones who will have to change the world. If it’s still here.

An audiobook that needs to be listened

This book shares facts that every woman should know. If you're a man; then you most definitely need to listen to this

With amazing humor the author puts the challenges and unjust treatments of women. From tampons to the positions of power that woman have had to fight for through out history

Highly recommend it

Ted Talk meets Comedy Show meets Girl’s Night

This is one of those books where you need to listen instead of read for the full experience. I’m not sure whether I loved her pirate Mike Pence voice more or if I loved her North Dakota mall employee voice better.

All I know is I laughed the whole time.

I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders

For women who need the facts presented in a way that doesn't increase the burden of being a woman. Erin is funny and provides ammo for all those infuriating conversations with people who are trying to keep women down. We have a lot of battles to fight, and I really appreciate this collection of essays- even better that it was read by the author.
