    This book is a superbly written documentary about women and how they are treated as marionettes and how they fight back. I received it as a CHRIStmas present and finished it by the new year.

    good girls gone bad...

    i have enjoyed every chapter of this book!!! it's fun to see how sexist views have allowed women to get away with so much. this book is bringing equality to the sexes as far as crime and punishment is considered! good read.
