As students, Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett and Holly Baxter spent a lot of time laughing at magazine pieces entitled things like '50 Sex Tips to Please Your Man' (particularly the ones that encouraged bringing baked goods into the bedroom). They laughed at the ridiculous ‘circles of shame’ detailing minor weight fluctuations of female celebs, or the shocking presence of armpit hair. And at the articles telling you how to remove cellulite from your arse using coffee granules.

But when they stopped laughing, they started to feel a bit uneasy. Was this relentless hum about vajazzles and fat removal just daft – at worst a bit patronising – or was something more disturbing going on?

Was it time to say NO? They thought so.

So they launched The Vagenda blog in 2012, and now they have written this laugh-out-loud book.

It is a brilliantly bolshy rallying call to girls and women of all ages. Caitlin Moran asked 'How to be a Woman’: The Vagenda asks real women everywhere to demand a media that reflects who we actually are.

Review:

"A brilliant expose of women's mags and marketing – laugh-out-loud and painfully funny. This gives me hope for women and for feminism and for fun" (Jeanette Winterson Guardian)

"Essential reading for every woman, young and grown-up – a guidebook for reading between the lines...A real romp!" (Jo Brand)

"This is great: warm, witty and wise – an antidote to all of the usual nonsense" (Jenny Eclair)

"Angry, opinionated and also waspishly funny. The Vagenda deserves to be a bestseller. Because it's worth it" (Caroline Sanderson The Bookseller)

"A great read for women of all ages" (Claire Heal Sunday Express)
