This is a book about poverty and prejudice, online dating and eating disorders, and lies on the television. The backlash is on against sexual freedom for men and women and social justice. Penny speaks for a new feminism that is about justice and equality. It’s about the freedom to be who we are, to love who we choose, to invent new gender roles, and to speak out fiercely against those who would deny us those rights.

"As Penny demonstrates… we are dealing with a new world order. This book is funny and cheeky and refreshingly generous." (The Observer)
"Laurie Penny can certainly coin a phrase. She writes well, inclusively and cogently with passion." (The Herald
I love Penny's relatable, down-to-earth language. She knows how to be funny, compassionate and enjoyable without pulling any punches when it comes to her messages. The truth. Made digestible but without a sugar coating. I'd especially recommend to any fellow man who finds himself drawn to feminism but isn't yet sure if he's allowed to be.
