And so I was reading the Wall Street Journal six months ago when I came across a book entitles Female Chauvinist Pigs. I read the review with interest. I’ve been wanting to read a book about feminism for the past year and here was a book with an updated 21st century view on it.
So I went online to buy the book and discovered that the author was Ariel Levy. Ariel was a high school classmate of mine who I always admired for her intellect but we had lost touch and hadn’t spoken since we were 18. needless to say, I was thrilled that I had some connection to the author as this may have been one of those books I instinctively buy and then just sit on my bookshelf.
Female Chauvinist Pigs is a very interesting book. And though it seems to be written for a female audience, it might be even more revealing for men as it brings up a variety of topics that we generally do not think about.
