Reviews

'Entertaining and informative. Its perfectly intelligent advice is in dire need of being put into practice. Get your daughters to read this, but only after your partners and sons have finished it'
-- Jo Brand
'I inhaled this. It is INCREDIBLE. Absolute perfection' -- Joeli Brearley, founder of Pregnant Then Screwed
'An astute and persuasive page-turner, a clear-sighted, compelling examination of injustice' * Observer *
'An urgent and important book. I read it with rage and anger at the injustices and inequalities, at how women are shamed and how they internalise this shame, and how they are held responsible for creating change rather than holding the systems and societal structures accountable for their oppression. But in the end, I read this with great optimism and hope. Because if we need to change this world, for us, and for our daughters, we have to fix the system. And this book is a blistering manifesto for this change' -- Dr Pragya Agarwal
'Powerful . . . a summary of the injustices women face - and the way that these interact with other forms of prejudice' * Sunday Times *
'I am in awe of Laura Bates and her ability to perfectly balance facts and her personal experiences, opinions and emotions. Her writing is nothing short of perfect' -- Sofie Hagen, author of Happy Fat
'Timely. Buy it for the men in your life' * Press Association *
'An almighty roar of a book' -- Terri White, author of Coming Undone
I challenge any man to read this book and still deny there's a problem * New Statesman *
