'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 lays bare her experience of the world as a woman and shares her views with unflinching honesty.
I found my own ideas of what it meant to be a male feminist challenged and that I need to listen more to those who actually know what it's like (women)
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!!!
I felt like this was a summary of all the arguments I've heard for the past 25 years. Yes there was good content they are valid arguments but I found it repetitive and focusing too much on the negative. Haven't we got anything fresh to add to the argument? Any inspiring stories to propel us forward.
Clementine put into words what I felt were major injustices in my life through similar yet not uncommon experiences. Until now I couldn't figure out why or how. This book made me laugh, cry, snicker, feel anger, feel pride, sadness and hope -all in the one chapter.
Clem Ford narrates her own book. Passionate and bold. Feminism as it stands today.
I have not been more inspired to 'fight like a girl' in a very long time. This is a must read for anyone who has ever thought 'would that also be the case if she was a he?'
I thought I had a handle on equal rights and could even feel good about my perspective. "Fight Like A Girl" has shown me there is so much more to be done. Listen to this. Challenge yourself and listen to this.
I think Fight Like a Girl is; searingly accurate and a messsge every person needs to hear. As a reader, I needed no convincing of her message but the unrelenting pace of difficult truths was hard to complete and I needed breaks. This book should come with a trigger warning. Read it and share with a friend, I'm dying to discuss/debrief it.
"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.
