Need tips on how to be a woman?

Being an office full of girls we could hardly fail to notice the buzz in the media and publishing industries being created by Times columnist Caitlin Moran's new book 'How To Be A Woman', published last week. Hailed as a vanguard of modern feminism, Women's Hour has labelled it the Female Eunuch rewritten for the 21st century. Personally we like anything that gets Jeremy Paxman talking about the rights and wrongs of Brazilian waxing and vajazzling live on Newsnight.

On this wave of new feminism tip, columnists in The Guardian and Observer have recently spoken about the smart, sassy feminist voices coming out of America via YouTube. If you haven't seen Amber from NineteenPercent's critique of Beyonce's 'Girls Who Run the World' video or Feminist Frequency talking on the Smurfette Principle check them out, as pointed out by Eva Wiseman in the Observer and Hadley Freeman in The Guardian respectively.

Take a look at them below and let us know what you think. Is this just smart, common sense or has the term feminism moved on?
