'A friend recently told me that the things I write are powerful for her because they have the effect of making her feel angry instead of just empty. I want to do this for all women and young girls - to take the emptiness and numbness they feel about being a girl in this world and turn it into rage and power. I want to teach all of them how to fight like a girl.' (Clementine Ford)
Online sensation, fearless feminist heroine and scourge of trolls and misogynists everywhere, Clementine Ford is a beacon of hope and inspiration to thousands of Australian women and girls. Her incendiary debut, Fight Like a Girl, is an essential manifesto for feminists new, old and soon to be and exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women. Crucially, it is a call to arms for all women to rediscover the fury that has been suppressed by a society that still considers feminism a threat.
Fight Like a Girl will make you laugh, cry and scream. But above all it will make you demand and fight for a world in which women have real equality and not merely the illusion of it.

This book resonated very strongly with me. Thank you Clementine for being brave enough to write this. This in many many parts has been me. I have been suppressing anger all my life. I no longer feel alone. Thank you. I am sure it will resonate with many others who wonder why they don't fit and why why why the injustice. Everyone should read this book.
Clementine is the most powerful feminist voice of my generation and I will show my love and support for her any chance I get. With each day, and after reading/listening to any of her work I feel stronger to stand up and be heard.
This is the most important book I own and will read/listen to it many times over. Thank you, Clementine!!!
Every woman can take something away from this book. It articulates and validates much of my lived experience. Highly recommended.
I loved this book and enjoyed hearing Clementine's honest and heartfelt story told in her own words on her own terms. A truly fabulous, non-academic look at feminist issues that equips women to 'fight back' in a mans world. I can not recommend this book highly enough. I think I will buy a physical copy too to circulate amongst my girl/(and more importantly)boy friends. Ms Forde you are a superstar and don't let anyone ever tell you otherwise! FORK them!
I feel like I'll be digesting this one for a while, but Clementine does such a good job of voicing everyday thoughts of women and hilariously presenting the insults and justifications of haters. She even helps you to respond to them! Enjoy the full 2 mins of her saying the word 'fork'.
"Phenomenally heartbreaking and rousing!"
I recommend this book to all women. This eloquently written book has helped me to to find my voice, when for so long I lacked the ability to fully articulate what I felt and experienced in the world. Thank you for all the other Clementines fighting the endless battle for equality while dealing with the deranged spotlight cast on them for doing so.
