Summary

Every day women are reinventing what it means to be female in cultures where power, privilege or basic freedoms are all too often equated with being male. One of the most tenacious campaigners of her generation, Caroline Criado-Perez introduces us to these pioneering women.

We meet the first woman to cross the Antarctic alone; a female fighter pilot in Afghanistan; a Chilean revolutionary turned politician; and the Iranian journalist who dared to uncover her hair.

Interesting

Full of information, open my eyes to what women having to go through. Interesting and an awareness to what women experiences in life is daunting. It demonstrates that women are strong.

Brilliant story telling

I found myself utterly immersed into these women's stories on my daily commute of an hour each way- just right to complete a chapter or so. For me, it was a very uplifting book as each chapter would finish with the achievement of each protagonist after a period of intense challenge and personal loss. From trekking across the Antarctic, to campaigning for rape kits to be tested to give 11k victims justice in one US law enforcement
department alone, to the fight for education and the right to not be abused- this weaves a fascinating, inspiring tapestry of women as fighters and leaders the world over.
