Boys Will Be Boys – Clementine Ford

boys will be boys by clementine ford

‘Everyone’s afraid that their daughters might be hurt. No one seems to be scared that their sons might be the ones to do it … This book … is the culmination of many years of writing about power, abuse, privilege, male entitlement and rape culture. After all that, here’s what I’ve learned: we should be f*cking terrified.

Clementine Ford

Power, Patriarchy and the Toxic Bonds of Mateship

Boys Will Be Boys has me fired up! Parts (in fact, a lot) of this book made me want to scream out loud; and I cried.

This is in-your-face writing. It’s confronting and I feel sickened by how big the problems are. I worry about raising our son. But mostly I’m feeling motivated to make and see change.

This is a fierce new book by Australian feminist Clementine Ford, author of Fight Like A Girl. Ford is a brave and inspirational woman; hers is a powerful voice cutting through the bullshit in the male dominated world we live in.

This is a must read for all parents. Actually, for anyone who cares about equality, the safety of women, and fixing our broken culture. Please read this book.
