Book Description

May 6 2008
Double standards are nothing new. Women deal with them every day. Take the common truism that women who sleep around are sluts while men are studs. Why is it that men grow distinguished and sexily gray as they age while women just get saggy and haggard? Have you ever wondered how a young woman is supposed to both virginal and provocatively enticing at the same time? Isn't it unfair that working moms are labeled "bad" for focusing on their careers while we shake our heads indisbelief when we hear about the occasional stay-at-home dad?

In He's a Stud, She's a Slut, and 49 Other Double Standards Every Woman Should Know, Jessica Valenti, author of Full Frontal Feminism, calls out the double standards that affect every woman. Whether Jessica is pointing out the wage earning discrepancies between men and women or revealing all of the places that women still aren't equal to their male counterparts-be it in the workplace, courtroom, bedroom, or home-she maintains her signature wittily sarcastic tone. With sass, humor, and in-your-face facts, this book informs and equips women with the tools they need to combat sexist comments, topple ridiculousstereotypes (girls aren't good at math?), and end the

4.0 out of 5 stars The worst thing to be is a girl Nov. 8 2009
Format:Paperback
Valentini's book brings us back to the basics. I feel so used to our daily life that this book bring back these issues into light again. Friendly writing for all audience, feels like it's just an old friend talking to you. A solutions is also offered at the end of each issue, which is extremely useful to apply to everyday life. From the wage gap, labels that were apply to women, to last name changes etc. As the book title, the general audience are women, but I believe this book is a must read for every one, no matter sex, age, background, race,or religion.

Valenti is a great writer, very passionate and straight to the point. These double standards are supported with evidence and are sadly still prevalent in our society today. A great awareness tool for any young woman!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good. Nov. 8 2012
By Thess TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Half the stuff in here isnt true, the other half is 50/50 men/womens fault.
there theres stuff missing like for example
the sterotype implied on the title of the book...

shouldnt men know this stuff too? or should we continue to raise our sons in this cycle...

Theres far FAR FAR better books on the topic. its very biased and even women would do better to find
other books with greater value at the same price.

also, the stuff in this book is freely available information through google, youll be surprised.
I wonder if google is the real author of this book...

its trash.

Those praising it definatly dont have a clue.
