Publisher's Summary

'Just imagine if we, the normal girls, stood united as an enormous, hysterical and proud army. We would be unstoppable.'

Read with gumption, fearlessness and sharp wit, Can I Speak to Someone in Charge? is a window into the ridiculous ideologies and the absurd expectations that shape the lives of modern women.

In a series of open letters, Emily Clarkson addresses all manner of subjects, from body hair to Facebook friends to the perils of wearing Lycra. She unpicks the validity of notions such as 'the thigh gap'; questions the quotidian scrutiny by the media; ponders the etymology of the term 'plus size'; and considers our unshakeable obsession with dieting, while wondering why some of us are still crying in changing rooms.

Full of vital life lessons, outrageous confessions and poignant reflections, Can I Speak to Someone in Charge? is a love letter to women everywhere; reminding us that being strong, being kind and being yourself is really what 'normal' should be.

'Being asked to write a book was probably the best thing that's happened to me - up until that point I was gravely concerned that my mum was the only person reading my blog. I hope this book will speak to a range of women, and men actually. I hope it will make people laugh, but more importantly I hope it will open people's eyes to the fact that we've got a lot to do if we want to make growing up in a good and kind world a possibility for our daughters.' (Emily Clarkson)
