The UK’s most prolific feminist thinker on feminism, defined eyebrows and "a good fiddle".

Caitlin Moran, best known for her autobiographical book How to Be a Woman, is arguably the UK’s most prolific feminist thinker. She examines girlhood, womanhood, and sex—lots of sex and let’s not forget masturbation—in her brilliant, filthy and gasp-inducing books and columns. Her latest novel, How to Be Famous, the sequel to best-selling How to Build a Girl, is her most brazen book yet. “I wanted to write about what you do, as a girl, when someone more powerful than you tries to sexually shame you,” says Moran. “I started the book before the #MeToo movement but once that hit the news it couldn’t flow out of me fast enough.” Here she talks about some of her favorite things, like being a funny feminist, the necessity of defined eyebrows and “a good fiddle”.
