"Throwing Shade podcast creator and co-host Erin Gibson takes the outrage felt by so many pussy hat-owners and distills it into a raw and hilarious book of essays from a bold, and relatable, new voice."



Erin Gibson has a singular goal - to create a utopian future where women are recognized as humans. In FEMINASTY—titled after her nickname on the hit podcast "Throwing Shade”—she has written a collection of make-you-laugh-until-you-cry essays that expose the hidden rules that make life as a woman unnecessarily hard and deconstructs them in a way that's bold, provocative and hilarious.Whether it's shaming women for having their periods, allowing them into STEM fields but never treating them like they truly belong, or dictating strict rules for how they should dress in every situation, Erin breaks down the organized chaos of old fashioned sexism, intentional and otherwise, that systemically keeps women down. FEMINASTY is Erin Gibson’s revolutionary handbook for dismantling the patriarchy, one pay gap joke at a time.


"In times like these, we need funny women more than ever. Luckily, we have Erin Gibson. An Emmy-nominated comedian and self-proclaimed ‘Southern loudmouth,’ she’s been hard at work turning dire political news on its head with her trademark wit, unapologetic takedowns and absurdist slants."
