In an interview with Time magazine, Caitlin Moran discussed her book How To Build a Girl, feminism, and the new wave of female artists.
Moran said these women have all come to the same realisation, "that you just don’t get any credit if you carry on being a timid, polite girl scared of talking about sex, abortion, politics, the physical bullshit of being a woman".
"You’re making your money out of being amusing and honest and unclenching women’s buttocks," she said.
By doing so, she hopes to make women feel that they don't have to try to be a "thin, hairless, well-groomed woman in uncomfortable shoes and a tight expensive dress" but can pursue "joy" instead.
Moran wants women to say: "I’m going to enjoy my life because you’re a long time dead, and what I actually want to do is eat a cheese sandwich, have a shag, go for a brisk walk, and then watch Ghostbusters."
