An ancient title of respect for women, the word "cunt" long ago veered off this noble path. Inga Muscio traces the road from honor to expletive, giving women the motivation and tools to claim "cunt" as a positive and powerful force in their lives. With humor and candor, she shares her own history as she explores the cultural forces that influence women's relationships with their bodies.

I had some mixed feelings about this. On many levels, it was great. However, I wasn't really fond of a lot of points, the book just ended up making me uncomfortable, not so much for what it said or anything, I can handle quite a bit. However, I felt like the author was screaming me. It was honestly very hard for me to finish reading because at many times I lost interest. However, there are parts of this I immediately began applying to my life and I'm glad I did. I'd still suggest it but say to be weary.
