Praise for the Unladylike podcast:
“While there are plenty of discussion-based feminist podcasts out there, few have figured out how to combine storytelling and interviews with social justice. Unladylike is perhaps the first to succeed.”

“Gritty, wildly informative, and informed: a must-have feminist survival guide for the Trump era.”
– STARRED Kirkus Review

“[A] smart, sassy field guide for feminists. . . . Unapologetic and witty, this work is a great choice for followers of Jennifer Baumgardner and Roxane Gay but will also appeal to young adults and graphic novel fans.”
– STARRED Library Journal Review

“This book is truly special. Not only do the authors present the problems, but they also offer potential solutions and inspirational tools that are so crucial in driving the conversation forward. Their charming tone combined with the incisively detailed breakdown of all the ways in which the patriarchy affects women make Unladylike a must-read.”
—Morgan Jerkins, author of This Will Be My Undoing
Unladylike is super smart, engaging, challenging, wildly necessary, and also really fun to look at. Can I please buy a million copies and spend my days traveling the country, handing them out to everyone I meet, on an epic patriarchy-smashing road trip? Anyone wanna join me?” 
Kate Schatz, author of Rad American Women A–Z, Rad Women Worldwide, and Rad Girls Can

“I cannot think of a friendlier or more delightful primer on women’s history, gender, and body awareness, and—of course—patriarchy-smashing than Unladylike.”
—Andi Zeisler, cofounder of Bitch Media

Unladylike is badass and punchy. Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin take everything you know about feminism and amplify it to its most intersectional promise with cheerful infographics and illustrated life advice. Unladylike shines a light on the seriousness of being a woman in the world, without losing the gleeful ferment of modern feminism.”
—Audrey Gelman, cofounder and CEO of The Wing

“Everyone needs this book on their shelf immediately.” 
Jessamyn Stanley, author of Every Body Yoga

Unladylike is chock-full of funny and smart advice, illustrations, and infographics for young women. This book serves as a great introduction to academic feminism and intersectionality, but makes you feel like you’re talking with your coolest aunt.”
—Rachel Ignotofsky, author of Women in Science and Women in Sports

Unladylike puts into words so much about gender, power, and the patriarchy that I knew but could never really articulate, and taught me things I had never considered. It’s a great book for anyone who wants to learn to navigate and fight against oppressive structures in an unladylike way–whether they identify as a lady or not.”
—Jaya Saxena, coauthor of Basic Witches
