Who better than Buffy and co. to teach us how to slay our personal demons? Buffy and her fellow babes -Willow, Cordelia, Anya and more -- have much to offer in terms of savvy insights, observations and life lessons.

SLAY LIKE A GIRL looks at female paradigms as presented in Buffy and so much more. Chapters include:

Teacher's Pet: On school, learning, knowledge. Passion: On love, sex, and romance in the Buffyverse. Men are monsters and other myths. Lies My Parents Told Me: On family - blood and found. What's My Line?: Work, professionalism and the work-life balance. Beauty and the Beast: Fashion, fitness and looking and feeling your best - by yourself, for yourself. (Smash the patriarchy - and the male gaze!) Bad Girls: On authority, agency, feminist power, and rebellion in the BUFFYVERSE.

Also featuring photos from the show, favourite quotes, a Which Badass Babe Are You? quiz, and fresh input from modern Ladies Who Slay, SLAY LIKE A GIRL will be an indispensable handbook for fans, feminists and all other fierce folk.
