I love a self-help book that can teach a thing or two. This book was super eye-opening about gender inequality and feminism. My favorite aspect of the book was the section titled "Check Your Privilege." This contained checklists that you could look at to see if you experience privilege. It was really enlightening and gave me a new perspective on how lucky I am in so many ways.
Given's humor and honesty makes this a quick, fun read (even though she touches on a lot of really important issues, such as homophobia and sexual assault). I was shocked to learn she was only 21-years-old; I don't want to be ageist, but a lot of young people don't have this much insight and empathy. I also loved her artwork, which was edgy and fun. I'd definitely be interested to see what Givens writes next.
