Are we liberated yet?
We got the votes. We got the "Girl Power!" T-shirts. So how come we still don't get dessert?
In Kiss My Tiara, Susan Jane Gilman sparks out feminist questions in a smart-mouth, no-bull, kiss-my-grits brand of girl talk. "Jazzercise is fascism," she gripes. And: "If we can't bring ourselves to order dessert in a restaurant, how are we going to bring ourselves to ask for a raise?" Even better: "Good girls don't hurt other people's feelings. Good girls are not overly aggressive, competitive, or boastful. Good girls please others. But what good girls are good for is another question." With lucid little droplets like these, Gilman opens our eyes to the fun we could and should be having if we'd all just loosen up and like ourselves.
Kiss My Tiara is full of wit, anger, and kick-butt advice. It's a scream -- and every good girl needs that. (Jesse Gale)
