"Rarely does 'essential reading' really mean that you urgently need to read a book. But Lean Out is different: the argument that a society that promotes 'aspiration' must rely on outliers is just one of its many gems. There is a danger that corporate feminism will enter academia and will not be recognised for the aberration that it is.Lean Out is the antidote. Just 87 pages long, it is well worth the many hours it takes to read and absorb." - Danny Dorling, Halford Mackinder professor of geography, University of Oxford "A very important, much-needed and well-researched book that isn't afraid to ask the right questions and demand answers. It is a straight-talking, timely call to arms" - Independent on Sunday "Vigorous...trenchant...a robust critique...it's conclusion is both inevitable and startling" - Shahidha Bari, Times Higher Education "Excellent...forward-looking" - Sarah Leonard, Bookforum ..".much more than just a riposte to the popular business manifesto for women. Fascinating, thought-provoking and at times outrage-inducing, Lean Out elucidates the many ways in which women are being subjugated by corporations and the government, and encourages us to take direct action to address these inequalities." - Ariane Sherine, Huffington Post
