Présentation de l'éditeur

'If Caitlin Moran's How To Be A Woman is the fun-filled manual for female survival in the 21st century, everyday sexism is its more politicised sister' (Independent on Sunday).
After experiencing a series of escalating sexist incidents, Laura Bates started the everyday sexism project and has gone on to write 'a pioneering analysis of modern day misogyny' (Telegraph).
After an astounding response from the wide range of stories that came pouring in from all over the world, the project quickly became one of the biggest social media success stories of the internet.
From being harassed and wolf-whistled at on the street, to discrimination in the workplace and serious sexual assault, it is clear that sexism had become normalised. But Bates inspires women to lead a real change and writes this 'extremely powerful book that could, and should, win hearts and minds right across the spectrum' (Financial Times).
Often shocking, sometimes amusing and always poignant, everyday sexism is a protest against inequality and a manifesto for change. It's 'a game-changing book, a must-read for every woman' (Cosmopolitan).
'Admirable and culturally transferable. "A storm is coming," writes Bates. After reading this book you'll hope so' (Independent). Welcome to the fourth wave of feminism. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Highly Recommended 10 mai 2014
Par A. STYLE - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I've just finished reading the book.

The book documents the verbal and physical abuse a lot of women have to put up with, predominantly by men, almost on a daily basis in the UK & US.

The author does discuss briefly abuse against men, but the book is essentially about women.

As a father and grandfather of girls I found it very shocking that this stuff is still happening.

Laura Bates does a good job raising awareness of everyday sexism against women. She, however, only briefly discusses solutions.

BTW, I didn't find the book anti-men at all.

It is anti-abuse whether committed by men or women.

Everyday Seixsm 20 octobre 2014
Par Damaskcat - Publié sur Amazon.com

I can remember stumbling across the Everyday Sexism Project not long after it first started and being totally stunned and shocked by how much sexism there still is around. Yes we have the laws which say everyone is equal but laws really don't have much impact on many people's daily lives it seems. This book is not just about sexism against women it includes many equally shocking and disturbing examples of sexism against men and boys too.

What many people don't appreciate is that sexism harms everyone and it is only by a drastic culture change that things will improve. Culture change doesn't just happen because a few people decide it will - it has to be bigger than that. I've heard people say that many sexist comments and sexist behaviour is just normal banter and you should just get a sense of humour and accept it but sexism is far more than that when it colours your everyday life and affects the way you behave in normal everyday situations. Do you cross the road to avoid wolf whistles and crude comments? Do you avoid working past one particular man's desk at work because you know he will try and grope you? Do you avoid telling your friends that actually you quite like the colour pink? If you do then sexism is affecting your everyday life.

Sexism in the work place, sexism at home in the family, sexism when you're out enjoying a social occasion, sexism when you're online. It affects us all at some time or another. Men as well as women. If you're a man, think for a moment how your friends and colleagues would react if you applied for paternity leave because you wanted to take on part of the childcare for your new born baby? How would everyone you know behave if you announced you were staying at home to look after your children and your wife was going back to work? How would you feel if you really wanted to train as a nurse or a ballet dancer or had to take on a part time job as a cleaner to make ends meet? The chances are you would suddenly be the recipient of a great many sexist comments.

Sexism harms all of us and the only way we can change society is to challenge it wherever we meet it. If you thought the equality legislation had stamped out sexism - then read this book and weep. It is still very much alive and living near you. People are people. It shouldn't matter what their skin colour is, what their sexual orientation is or their religion or their gender. If we related to one another first and foremost as people then sexism - or any other 'ism'- wouldn't exist.

If you think this book is only about sexism and women then you could not be more wrong. Read it and see for yourself. It will make you angry and it may make you cry - with sadness, rage and frustration. Hopefully it will inspire you to challenge sexism wherever you see it and not accept it as 'just a joke'.

A wonderful book that details the struggles that women face in everyday life due to sexism/misogyny. It is eye opening and well researched. I highly recommend it.

Having followed the Everyday Sexism project on Twitter and the website for a while now, I was looking forward to a book summary. This did not disappoint, it roughly categorises the themes and illustrates them (sometimes painfully, sometimes with humour) with real stories from the Project.
Recommended read, especially for parents raising the next generation.

Has the time come to treat sexism as we would racism, Islamophobia or homophobia?- I say YES! 14 juillet 2014
Par T. Washington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Every so often you come across a book that completely changes the way you think about sometihng or someone( case in point: "Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Experimentation On Black Americans From Colonial Times To The Present", Doubleday 2007 by my namesake Harriet Washington, "Every Mother's Son" by Judith Arcana and others) . "Everyday Sexism" is one of those books. I should declare my own bias on this issue, in my salad days, I was accused and got in trouble at one workplace for sexual harassment( in my defence I was doing more than I saw other men doing at the time). As was said of Napoleon, if at age twenty a man is not a revolutionary then he has no heart, but if he is STILL a revolutionary at age 50 then he has no head.
The biggest question for a man( such as yours truly) reading this chilling compendium of sexist commentary and practises( from catcalls on the street from the seeming preoccupation of _usually male commentators- about female politicians appearances from Julia Gillard and Angela Merkel's childless status and choice in shoes to Hillary Clintons laugh and looks- the so-called "Clinton cackle"- as if order to be a viable Presidential candidate you had to look like a film star- which would have ruled out Harry S.Truman, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon to name but a few past Chief Executives), is to ask that in a society which (rightly) abhors discrimination based on race/skin colour, religion-Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia- or increasingly, sexual orientation, why is sexism and other forms of gender based discrimination so widely tolerated( OK women are the primary victims but men also suffer from it as Laura Bates reminds us)???
(more full disclosure: I am the uncle of two now grown up nieces. From time to time I would say something and my eldest neice who was always precocious would say"Uncle Terry, that's sexist!" I think I'm starting to see what she meant.
Recent events- Elliot Rodger's gender motivated killing spree in Islas Vistas(even if only two of his victims were women, his misogynist "manifesto" envisaged killing many more). the campaign against FGM( female genital mutilation-ludicorusly defended or condoned by some "progressives" on the grounds that criticism of it was "racist" or even "Islamophobic"), Boko Haram's mass abduction of Nigerian schoolgirls(and threats to forcibly marry them off), the recent UN Conference about making war rape a war crimne/crime against humanity all show just how topical this issue is!
