'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.

Additional text

A dizzyingly clever, warm and witty compilation of essays covering topics which range from the 2016 US presidential election, to writing which explores the notion of gender: it looks at the nature of relationships and examines the current culture we find ourselves in . Passionate, interesting, thoughtful


Bitch Doctrine by Laurie Penny, one of the most accomplished and acerbic of the new, young journalists emerging from the protest movements of the 2010s, takes you to the front trench of the gender war and keeps you there longer than anyone should really stay Paul Mason, Guardian
