Difficult Women : A History of Feminism in 11 Fights (The Sunday Times Bestseller) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Well-behaved women don't make history: difficult women do. 'This is the antidote to saccharine you-go-girl fluff.

Effortlessly erudite and funny' Caroline Criado-Perez'Compulsive, rigorous, unforgettable, hilarious and devastating' Hadley Freeman** Shortlisted in the 2020 Parliamentary Book Awards **Strikers in saris.

Bomb-throwing suffragettes. The pioneer of the refuge movement who became a men's rights activist. Forget feel-good heroines: meet the feminist trailblazers who have been airbrushed from history for being 'difficult' - and discover how they made a difference.

Here are their stories in all their shocking, funny and unvarnished glory. 'All the history you need to understand why you're so furious, angry and still hopeful about being a woman now.

A book that is part intellectual weapon in your handbag, part cocktail with a friend' Caitlin Moran'A great manifesto for all those women who have never been very good at being well-behaved.' Mary Beard 'Difficult Women is full of vivid detail, jam-packed with research and fizzing with provocation' Sunday Times'Smart, thoughtful and rich in detail' Guardian'A witty and wise corrective to the whitewashed heroines of the "rebel girls" and "awesome women" industry' New Statesman'Intellectually rigorous, satisfying, eloquent and witty with it.

What more could you want?' Sunday Times'Full of Lewis's short, sharp political observations...almost always as funny as they are informative...

It proves her point; that we all have something to learn from each other, if we can open our minds to the true, complicated nature of humanity' Daily Telegraph
