Shrewed: A Wry and Closely Observed Look at the Lives of Women and Girls Reviews

  • Amber Daugherty
    I finished this book and immediately felt like I'd just made a new best friend - happy, optimistic and understood. It cannot be emphasized enough how important it is to read about other women's experiences so that we know we are not alone. One essay in Shrewed talks about that asshole voice in your ...

    I really enjoyed reading this collection of feminist essays. They were interesting, well written, funny, and thought provoking. I hadn't heard of Elizabeth Renzetti before I read her book but I'll certainly keep an eye out for articles by her now.I thought the essay on that self doubting voice in yo...
  • Beth
    A wise, witty combination of autobiography and feminism. I like how Renzetti touched (albeit briefly) on how the patriarchy also negatively impacts boys, and how we need (and how we white women are finally waking up to) intersectionality in feminism. It was a quick, engrossing read and I laughed out...

  • Emmkay
    Delightful and witty (but also sometimes very moving) collection of feminist essays. Not new ground, but enjoyable, thought-provoking, timely - that good stuff. Highlights included Renzetti's writing about her mother (a nurse and single parent in the 70s and, from the sounds of it, a real hoot in he...
  • Lata
    A quick though emotional read of Elizabeth Renzetti's personal and professional experiences with misogyny, though she does write a little also about the extra hurdles and barriers in place for women of colour and those in the LGBTQ community. And this is written from a North American perspective, so...
  • Sarah
    A quick read about sexism and the lives of women with some interesting observations and insights. I found myself agreeing with a lot of the author had to say... but that the book didn't have all that much new to say. As with many books like this, I found this to be kind of an echo chamber -- yes, I ...
  • Niamh
    The title of this book is rather misleading. It's a grand comment to say that you'll look at the lives of every woman and every girl, particularly as many of these essays pertain to white, cisgender ladies. Whilst you believe you're going to be examining key issues in the feminist debate that affect...
