Publisher's Summary

If you're thinking, 'Jess, who?' then I'm glad that there was something about 'everywoman' and 'truth' that caught your eye. Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about. Because I'm a woman with a cause, I have been called a feminazi witch and a murderer and threatened with rape. The Internet attracts a classy crowd. So, speaking the truth isn't always easy, but I believe it's worth it. And I want you to believe it, too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything. By demanding to be heard, by dealing with our imposter syndrome, by being cheerleaders, doers not sayers, creating our own networks and by daring to believe that we can make a difference, we can. We're women and we're kick-ass. And that's the truth.

    Story
    "The kind of MPs we need"

    This is a story of how a real representative of the people was elected. It’s also a great at explaining the trials and tribulations women go through and how we are still at heart only partially on the way to equality.

    "Unique Brummie slant on the world! "

    Never listened to a book like this. Brutally honest, hard hitting and thought provoking. A vital contribution to the modern day debate on gender relations.

    "So worthwhile"

    A worthwhile book to write and to read. I am so glad Jess Phillips took the time and effort, and continues to in her very worthwhile life, helping society as a whole at every turn. It's inspiring to all, upsetting at times and brutally honest on pretty much every page. It's deeply political, informative and rallying. I will miss her voice! I am telling everyone I know to read it. It's for everyone.

    "Absolutely wonderful"

    This is the best piece of personal and political writing I've seen in years. I might be a bit in love with Jess after this, and definitely in awe of her. A wonderful woman and a great storyteller

    "Really enjoyable and thought provoking"

    Really enjoyable. A person I knew little about before reading this, save for seeing her on the news a couple of times.
    A really engaging, enlightening, angering, angry and empowering read. I'm so glad there are women like this one out in the world.
    I'd recommend this to anyone who likes to spend time in the company of intelligent women.

    "Raw and inspiring. Great job babs!"

    This is wonderful. It has Sheryl Sandberg feel to it. Love the "you can do it, I did it" feel. Loads of bookmarks of little things to go back to and quotes to use. I love the humanity "6 Bakewell tarts" and her family <3

    "Inside peak at life as a women in leadership"

    Thank you Jess Phillips.
    Your authenticity emboldens and inspires. Your experience is universal. And I agree - we must encourage each other to speak up.
