If you’ve ever wished for the power to make a catcalling asshole shut up, Jenn Woodall has your back.
The bold, colorful ways in which Woodall explores domestic violence, street harassment, and gender expression are wonderful, if at times painful. This book hits home because it doesn’t shy away from any of the most dangerous aspects of being a woman. Nor does it shy away from the righteous fury with which most women have to live their daily lives, even when doing something as simple as going for a bike ride or taking a photo against the backdrop of a colorful brick wall.
The art and social commentary in Jenn Woodall’s GIRLS make it an absolute must-have.
