Feminism book/website recommendations for 13yr DD?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a feminism 101 type book for my 13yr old daughter? I'm new to conscious feminism myself and so am clueless as to what may be appropriate for her (nothing too heavy - something witty and not short on humour would be perfect!). I'm after something to reinforce the general message she already gets from me.

This is prompted by one of her friends lamenting that "boys are only interested in big boobed skinny girls". sad How depressing!! Basically I just want to ensure she starts off on the right track on her journey into womanhood.

So, any ideas? smile

Has she read How To Be a Woman?

There is jumpmag.co.uk which isn't feminist per say buy offers a great alternative to "how to please your boyfriend and make yourself available and attractive to men for the rest of your life" type articles.

I think its aimed at 8-13 yr olds.

No she hasn't read How to be a Woman. Would that be a good place to start?

Will also take a look at mightygirl and jumpmag.

Many thanks
