Often funny, sometimes surprising and always inspiring... this diverse anthology of fresh feminist voices will speak to everyone. * Sheerluxe * Wonderfully candid, often funny and absolutely necessary, a triumphant rallying call to young women * The Observer * This collection of essays curated by writer Scarlett Curtis is a call-to-arm that allows us to unpick what it means to be a feminist in a safe space. To understand the complexities that unite women from all different walks of life, colours and creeds and how to rise up against a patriaxrchy that wants to dictate what a feminist means. It's not trying to be the definitive book on feminism but it will keep the conversation going L-O-U-D-L-Y. * Stylist.co.uk * From Scarlett's captivating and grounding introduction to angry tales of personal experiences ... this book has a bit of everything. Pick it up and read one story from your favourite columnist or actress, but I guarantee you'll end up reading the full, illuminating collection, and you'll possibly finish it knowing more about your own personal stance than you imagined. * Glamour.co.uk * We advise placing a copy in the hands of every girl (and guy) you know * Red Magazine * As a feminist who loves pink, I give this brilliant book of essays an enthusiastic "YES" * Mindy Kaling * Brilliant, hysterical, truthful and real.
