"Essential reading for the planet."-- "Emma Thompson"
This really is the 'everything you have always wanted to know about feminism but were afraid to ask' manual. Essential reading for the planet.-- "Emma Thompson"
Tackles issues from democracy to sexuality to porn with a lightness and hilarity that makes even the newly ordained feminist feel at home.-- "Scarlett Curtis, author of Feminists Don't Wear Pink and Other Lies"
Her 'Open Letter from the Gentlemen of Hollywood, ' a riposte to the Weinstein saga, is worth the cover price alone.-- "Sunday Times"
With a distinct, lively, and consistently hilarious delivery, Frances-White upends common misconceptions-feminists, she assures readers, can love lipstick and men-and encourages readers to do what you can, when you can to end oppressive power structures. Feminists of any stripe will be moved by this rousing, funny, highly appreciative exhortation to 'smash the patriarchy like a strong, green, healthy plant breaking through the foundations of an old house.'-- "Publishers Weekly"
This high-energy book reminds readers about the origins of feminism and how important it is for women to support each other.-- "Booklist" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

I've been listening to the podcast for a couple of years, and so in that awkward way that you get with people you follow but actually have never met - I feel like Deborah is my friend, and honestly, I'm so proud of her for the achievement of this book! Wow, this sounds even more lame when you write it down. Ah well!
Right, now to go and politely encourage all my friends and family to read it too.
It’s a powerful and inclusive piece of work. Even if you think you know everything there is to know about modern feminism, I guarantee you’ll find something new – and breathtaking – in there.
It’ll get you angry, fired-up, and hopeful for the future.
I stopped highlighting passages halfway through, because it feels like every other sentence could be pasted on a t-shirt.
It’s accessible at all levels and thoroughly interesting and enjoyable to read. I’d particularly love to see an extended edition of the final chapter which looks at the appeal behind the ‘guilty’ pleasures that sometimes make us feel like bad feminists.
