Writer Erin Gibson takes on the patriarchy with comedy in her new book, Feminasty, a collection of essays on the many facets of oppression against women, including laws, economic power, societal expectations, and sexist language. Her essay on the word “girl,” for example, is a hilarious takedown of the incessant popularity of calling grown women girls. Gibson has a sharp, witty way of putting things, and isn’t afraid to make an outrageous joke, which is why you should head on over to Magers & Quinn to hear her read from her book. While the fight is long and hard, we gotta laugh every once in a while, too.
