Product description

From Amazon

An Amazon Best Book of June 2016: Speaking up for women's issues with a bold and unflinching voice is nothing new for Jessica Valenti. Her new memoir, Sex Object, evokes this trademark approach, along with insights into her personal experience, in order to explain how sexism has shaped generations of women. Many times throughout this book I was wonderfully uncomfortable with the ideas and points Valenti puts forth--and then other times I found myself angry (at myself) when I saw unexpected parallels in my own life experience. Readers who haven’t experienced Valenti's writing before may be shocked by Sex Object--but not disappointed. --Penny Mann, The Amazon Book Review

Review

“Yes, All Men (And Everyone Else) Need To Read ‘Sex Object’” (NPR)^“Powerful...incredibly readable... she wants to take us back to a place of telling stories.” (The Nation)^“This aching account of attempting to live, date and work while female is a brave admission of vulnerability.” (Washington Post)^“A bold undertaking… consciousness raising. Valenti is one of America’s best-known and often divisive feminists.” (The Guardian)^“Valenti writes in impressively honest detail.” (Salon)^“Valenti uses the personal to shed light on a universally female political problem. There is an awakening that happens as a woman reading this book.” (Bust Magazine)^“[Valenti’s] memories are relatable and raise important questions about how society treats and views women.” (Bustle)^“An entertaining and shocking memoir from a leading feminist writer.” (Booklist)^“Amazing...a profoundly raw and honest book.” (Ezra Klein, Vox)^“A powerful literary memoir that expertly makes the case for feminism today.” (Harper's Bazaar)^“Powerful.. more than the sum of its parts… a bold and unflinching road map of Valenti’s journey to become the woman she is.” (Publishers Weekly)^“A zesty, zeitgeisty memoir.” (O Magazine)^“Jessica Valenti is widely known as a feminist leader- with this stunningly brave and often funny memoir, we get a chance to know her as a human being. This is an incredibly powerful book. I can’t recommend it loudly enough.” (Jill Soloway, writer, producer, creator of the Emmy-winning show Transparent)^“Adrienne Rich wrote, ‘When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her.’ In Sex Object, Jessica Valenti tells her truth with stunning vulnerability and courage, defying easy answers and daring us to look away. You won’t forget it.” (Irin Carmon, New York Times bestselling author of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg)^“Deeply moving, honest, and unflinching, Sex Object secures Jessica Valenti’s place as one of the foremost writers and thinkers of her generation. Her personal story highlights universal truths about being a woman, and makes the case for why feminism today is an unstoppable force.” (Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America)^“Jessica Valenti’s powerful personal story offers unique perspective on how sexism and patriarchy manifest themselves in the daily lives of American women. Sex Object is a necessary read for women and men alike.” (Jamil Smith, Senior National Correspondent, MTV News)^“I began reading Jessica Valenti’s Sex Object before the most recent tape (as of this writing) leaked of a presidential candidate bragging about sexually assaulting women for fun, but there could hardly be a better validation for the subject.” (AV Club)
