Librarian Recommended Reads: Girls will be girls by Emer O’Toole

Girls will be girls by Emer O'Toole

Girls will be girls by Emer O’Toole

Emer O’Toole inadvertently shot herself to fame by revealing her un-shaved armpits on television—an act so subversive that the clip went viral and she became entrenched in an epic media storm.

In Girls will be Girls Emer investigates how we are socialised to “perform” our assigned gender roles, what happens when we don’t, and how we might break down stereotypes that put us all in boxes and feel more comfortable in our much diverse bodies.

An easily digested read which doesn’t run light on research, witty and engaging, this book is a must-read for consolidated or emerging feminists (male and female), or anyone interested in gender-neutral parenting.
