Clear-eyed, witty and irreverent, Laurie Penny is as ruthless in her dissection of contemporary feminism and sophistication politics as she is in discussing her personal reviews in journalism, activism and underground culture.
This is a booklet approximately poverty and prejudice, on-line relationship and consuming issues, riots within the streets and lies at the tv. The backlash is on opposed to sexual freedom for women and men and social justice – and feminism must get braver.
Penny speaks for a brand new feminism that takes no prisoners, a feminism that's approximately justice and equality, but additionally approximately freedom for all. It's in regards to the freedom to be who we're, to like who we decide, to invent new gender roles, and to talk out fiercely opposed to those that could deny us these rights. it's a booklet that offers the silenced a voice – a voice that speaks of unspeakable things.
