Author(s): Caroline Criado-Perez
Doing anything 'like a woman' used to be an insult. Now, as the women in this book show, it means being brave, speaking out, and taking risks, changing the world one step at a time. Here, campaigner and journalist Caroline Criado-Perez introduces us to a host of pioneers, including a female fighter pilot in Afghanistan; a Chilean revolutionary; the Russian punks who rocked against Putin; and the Iranian journalist who uncovered her hair.
Gathering together stories from all corners of the world, this is an inspiring celebration of private heroisms and public triumphs, and a brilliant, necessary manifesto for women everywhere
