Who says that girls should be seen and not heard? What’s wrong with ambition in a woman? Mona Eltahawy’s book is a clarion call for an uprising against patriarchy, giving the middle finger to those “seven sins” that girls have been taught they should never do or be: angry, ambitious, powerful, etc. It is as piercingly intelligent as it is uncompromising. Every woman should read this.
