How to Rule the World as a Smartmouth Goddess

“Sure, beauty has the power to excite men. But so does a box of donuts.”

“In today’s world of contradictory exceptions, we’d like a sage, female voice helping us to stand tall, be ourselves, and not take any crap. We want a bad attitude, thank you — and a good set of power tools.” — Kiss My Tiara

An irreverent guide to power and attitude for women of all sizes, shapes, and colors, Gilman’s first bestselling book has been dubbed “a feminist classic” and “a bible for young women.” Offering funny, down-and-dirty life advice on everything from negotiating salaries to dealing with sexual harassers, it includes chapters such as “Beauty Tips from Mental Institutions,” “How to Survive Your Relatives,” “Never Mind a Penis, We’ll Take a Bigger Paycheck” and “We Don’t Shape History by Shaping Our Thighs.” Now in its eleventh printing, it remains as relevant as ever.
