"'Our brand of feminism is different from what has gone before' said Ellie Levenson, author of The Noughtie Girl's Guide to Feminism, to be published in July. 'However, feminism clearly has an image problem. What we need to get across is that you can be feminine and a feminist.'" Independent on Sunday "Witty look at the F-word for those who support equal rights but are less keen on man-bashing and bra-burning." The Bookseller "Our brand of feminism is different from what has gone before" said Ellie Levenson, author of The Noughtie Girl's Guide to Feminism, to be published in July. Independent on Sunday "This isn't your standard feminist rant - it's far from a truculent tract. Instead, we have a witty discussion about how society operates from a woman's perspective." Birmingham Sunday Mercury "there's much to admire in Levenson's spirited, deceptively frothy arguments in favour of a feminism that accommodates the many choices and complexities involved in being a 21st-century woman without ever negating the fundamental need for equality." "The fluffy approach may send shudders through some of feminism's more leathery campaigners but Levenson's sassy attempt to reclaim the word and show how relevant it is to today's world is admirable." Metro "Without oversimplifying, [Ellie Levenson] offers a survey and synthesis of what has already been achieved and what remains to be done - although she's not afraid to strike out into more controversial territory at times. A fine book, and regrettably still a necessary one." Leicester Mercury "She is a good example of the younger breed of feminists, women who are not exactly on the front line but who still make a contribution to the debate." The Times "A generation has somehow grown up without a clear idea of the breakthroughs the feminists made, so Levenson's book is timely." The Spectator
