He's a Stud, She's a Slut, and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know
by Jessica Valenti Author
Jessica Valenti, internet feminist extraordinaire, has written this handy guide to spotting a particular and pervasive form of sexism in everyday life: the double standard of gendered language. To use the example from the title: Do you ever hear a woman referred to admiringly as a "stud"? Probably not. And so it begins. Our culture is focused on being critical of every last thing that women do—from grooming to aging to leadership to parenting—and giving men a free pass on the exact same actions. Your first step to fighting and changing these stereotypes is understanding them, and this book is your guide. Fight the patriarchy!
