I just found my favourite book from when I was little, it has some RPW wisdom on boys and gorgeous sections on domestic and feminine things! (self.RedPillWomen)

This book is so lovely. I was absolutely obsessed with it when I was like 10 (started my RP training a tad early, which was unfortunately interrupted by a slight feminist stage!) and I finally found it again. It has such cute sections on hair, makeup, cooking, first aid, cleaning, spa days and gardening.

I just thought I'd share it with you all, because it has so many skills that most of us are aiming to perfect! It's a lovely read, so I'd for sure recommend picking it up or borrowing it from your local library. Imgur link: (http://imgur.com/a/rlLbj)

Oh my, this book loks wonderful! (Or, should I say "glorious"?) Judging from the pages shown, the content seems to fit both young girls and women alike. And such a gorgeous cover design! Why can't all books today be made with such attention to detail? Thank you very much for sharing - now I just have to wait for this work day to be over so that I can find out where on the Internet to buy it!

Edit: grammar

That is wonderful! I love the enthusiastic, positive tone as well-really encouraging feminity in a fun and informative way. Books like these are fantastic for helping girls nurture and grow those innate skills already from a young age. What better time to learn about the rewarding nature of embracing their femininity!

Thanks for sharing this. I just went on Amazon and got a used copy from England of all places. My daughter is going to love this.

Silly I know, but (being an American) getting it from the UK just makes it that much better :)

Best part was the the dry batter on the page talking about, "How to make cupcakes."

[–]saffronbelle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought that was so endearing.

Added to Amazon wishlist! Awesome!

I love the section on how to deal with boys. I wish all women could read that and understand it. I'll admit I'm guilty of being spoiled by my mom.

I'm very happy to see a book instructing women to simply tell them what the problem is instead of hinting at it. Overall, this is a very good book.

I decided to ignore the part about 're-educating' boys, but I really do love how they say to compliment your partner lots and say what you really mean too.

I'm betting that girls rather be with a boy spoilt by his mother, than with a boy who never had a mother.

[–]AerobusTRP MOD 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Why? Serious question.

[–]d3gu 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yeh, I'd be interested in knowing too - because I personally disagree.

There is a difference between 'a bit of a mummy's boy' and 'spoiled' - my first boyfriend was totally spoilt by his mum to the point of not knowing how to do ANYTHING, and it didn't help that he still lived with his parents aged 26. He couldn't drive, cook/reheat things in the microwave, tie his laces properly, and his manners were atrocious because she had never brought him up on rudeness. But in a weird way, like he was obsessive about 'no elbows on the table', but would be incredibly rude or inappropriate. One time he actually said I was 'ruining christmas' because I made a joke about him still believing in Santa.

And no, he didn't have any learning disabilities, autism or anything. He was just terribly spoilt. Think Veruca from Charlie & The Chocolate Factory.

Yeah ok I didn't mean it like that. I am "spoiled" in the sense that I've had to iron my own clothes like maybe 4 times because my mom was nice enough to iron it most times. I'm capable of driving, cooking (more than just microwaving food), tying laces, and I have manners.

No, I mean - I was agreeing with your question to ColdEric:

I have a number of friends who are single fathers, and their kids (girls AND boys) are all turning out great. Compare those kids to spoilt brats, and I know which ones I prefer.

(Not saying they're mutually exclusive, just that single-parent kids often turn out just fine)

Thankyou! I was swatching some nail colours last night. Also, massive shoutout to Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polishes, they really do stay chip-free for a whole week.

[–]ColdEiric 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That piece on boys is flawless. You girls shouldn't be allowed to have such accurate descriptions of us.

[–]gabilromariz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love this! I have a similar book (the book for audacious girls) covered in blue glitter that's a bit of a modern version of this. It tells stories of ancient queens and faraway cultures, teaches cursive and some crafts as well as children's games and other assorted girly stuff like how to dry flowers or make a girl club

[–]saffronbelle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What an enchanting read. I'm 21 and just purchased it for myself.

[–]LisatheGnome 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Love it!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

WOW I wish I'd had this as a kid. I grew up with brothers and was taught/expected to act exactly like them. All things feminine were bashed in my house and if I dared to wear a dress or makeup or style my hair, I was basically chased around with insults about how stupid/ugly/pointless it is.

I even dated a guy EXACTLY like description in the book. He even told me, flat out, "I will not do anything I don't enjoy" as though I was somehow having an orgasm from washing a dish or folding laundry.

Girls today need a book like this, not the "everyone has a boy best friend, preferably black, and he is totally the same as a girl but he wears hoodies" garbage they sell on Nickelodeon/Disney these days.

Love this! I want to buy a copy and keep it by my vanity :)

[–]vintagegirlgame 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So cute! Every girl needs the anonymous advice of a good coming of age book. Reminds me of a series of teen books I had by the American Girl doll company, I learned how to shave my legs thanks to those books!

Just added to my Red Library on Pinterest. I've searched both TRP and RPW for recommended reads and keep track of them here. Currently on How To Help Your Husband Get Ahead by Mrs. Dale Carnegie (great feminine complement to her husband's How to Win Friends & Influence People that is so popular on TRP). Her book is out of print and quite rare, copies are $50-$100+, and even saw one (signed by both Carnegies) for over $600! Such fantastic RPW material, I'm thinking of sharing a book report of it for you ladies since it's so hard to get a copy.

I need this book in my life, thank you!

[–]MissImprovement 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I seriously think I bought this book at the school book fair and then my mom took it away. I remember the piece about how to properly apply perfume and I still use those methods to this day! :)

My brothers definitely had the boys' version of this book.
