Reviews

"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"
