              Get life advice and a crash course on women's rights from the great feminists of every generation. Have you ever wondered if Gloria Steinem would support your decision to get a nose job? Or if Betty Friedan would watch Star Wars with you? Half an introduction to feminism, half a ...guide to life, this book uses 40 everyday questions and problems to explore the theories and concepts of the greatest feminists and suffragettes of all time. With quirky illustrations and intriguing and original takes on the biggest questions, What Would Beauvoir Do? helps readers to understand why these feminists were great while entertaining you with historical and biographical detail about their lives. The 40 questions reveal not only Simone de Beauvoir's insights but how other great feminists would approach the problem. Newly armed with this wisdom, readers can make their own decisions. In addition to de Beauvoir, the feminist leaders span history to include Alice Walker, activist and author of The Color Purple; Mary Wollstonecraft, 18th century writer, philosopher and advocate of women's rights; Luce Irigaray, 20th century French author, feminist and cultural theorist; Elizabeth Cady Stanton, early 19th century suffragist, social activist and abolitionist; Charlotte Perkins Gilman, prominent 19th century feminist; Sarojini Naidu, freedom fighter and poet of modern India; Emmeline Pankhurst and Emily Davison, leaders of the British suffragette movement and Coretta Scott King, widow of Martin Luther King. There are five thematic chapters as follows with examples of the questions: Work Should I speak up when my colleague makes a sexist joke? Should I deliberately hire a woman to even out the gender balance? Am I betraying the feminist cause if I quit my job to have a baby? Your Body Why should anyone else have a say about what I do with my body? To shave or not to shave - that is the question. I like wearing make-up. Is that bad? Family What's wrong with taking my husband's last name? My d

              A new series of advice from the great philosophers on how to live an authentic life. This book gives readers a peek into the minds of history's great thinkers, in this case, Friedrich Nietzsche and other philosophers that have considered life's most challenging dilemmas. The book... asks these luminaries for their advice with the problems that threaten our contentment and beliefs and also provides a fascinating overview of the many branches of philosophical study. The book has five sections of questions that any of us might ask and which, whether mundane or disturbing, do cause existential distress. Some examples are: 1. Relationships Should I tell my partner that I kissed someone at the office party I just found out that my dad is not my dad My partner is cheating on me -- what should I do My mother smacked me once -- it's all her fault 2. Self and identity Everyone thinks of me differently -- so who the hell am I Why shouldn't I do whatever I want How do I become one of the good guys Do I have to be a different person now that I'm a parent I'm nearly 50 -- now what 3. How to live Why should I be good How can I be happy Is it OK to hurt others on my way to a big promotion Should I buy a bigger TV 4. Art and aesthetics I think my partner is beautiful but my best friend doesn't agree What's artistic about a can of soup Should I enhance my looks with plastic surgery What's so beautiful about nature 5. Politics Why should I pay for someone else to get free healthcare Should I leave the toilet seat up or down I once got robbed, and now I'm too scared to walk the streets Why can't I decide who to vote for. Life is not simple and it is certainly not without many ethical and moral challenges to which we respond sometimes with intellect and other times with emotion. It can all be a bit much. Now a reader need only turn to the question troubling them and Nietzsche, along with Aristotle, Hobbes, Schopenhauer and other great thinkers, will tell you what they think.
