Caitlin Moran's wildly successful tract How To Be A Woman, presents feminism as less a universal club than a bitchy sorority, made up of well-connected women like Moran who consider themselves better, more spiritual and more "real", than other women, than "fallen" women. With all its jokes about vajazzling and marmosets and poorly educated yobs, Moran's book uses the language of sisterhood in defense of class solidarity for big-city elites. Brendan O'Neill takes a look at a new publishing phenomenon that is, at root, a new etiquette manual for ladies that confirms the unstoppable backward march of feminism into the snobbery, sexlessness and censoriousness of the Victorian era.
