'I can't really think of another writer who so consistently and bravely keeps thinking and talking and learning and trying to make the world better' Caitlin Moran
Smart and provocative, witty and uncompromising, this collection of Laurie Penny's writing establishes her as one of the most urgent and vibrant feminist voices of our time. From the shock of Donald Trump's election and the victories of the far right, to online harassment and the transgender rights movement, these darkly humorous articles provoke challenging conversations about the definitive social issues of today.
Penny is lyrical and passionate in her desire to contest injustice; she writes at the raw edge of the zeitgeist at a time when it has never been more vital to confront social norms. These revelatory, revolutionary essays will give readers hope and tools for change from one of today's boldest commentators.
