Summary

A funny, joyful, frank and inspiring book about embracing both feminism and our imperfections, from the creator of the hit comedy podcast, Deborah Frances-White.

In 2015 I described myself as 'guilty feminist' for the first time. My goals were noble, but my concerns were trivial. I desperately wanted to close the pay gap, but I also wanted to look good sitting down naked.

From inclusion to the secret autonomy in rom coms, from effective activism to what poker can tell us about power structures, Deborah explores what it means to be a 21st-century feminist and encourages us to make the world better for everyone.

This audiobook also includes exclusive interviews with performers, activists and thinkers - Jessamyn Stanley, Zoe Coombs Marr, Susan Wokoma, Bisha K. Ali, Reubs Walsh, Becca Bunce, Amika George, Mo Mansfied and Leyla Hussein - plus a piece from Hannah Gadsby.

Read by Deborah Frances-White, this audiobook includes live excerpts from The Guilty Feminist podcast, with interviews narrated by Adjoa Andoh and Becca Bunce.

Critic reviews

"This really is the 'everything you have always wanted to know about feminism but were afraid to ask' manual. From a mind as lucid and witty as it is kind and empathetic comes essential reading for the planet." (Emma Thompson)

Praise for The Guilty Feminist podcast: "'Hilarious, irreverent, eternally surprising, classy as hell, genius comedians... It's shows like this that breathe life into conversations about feminism." (Phoebe Waller-Bridge)

"Tackles issues from democracy to sexuality to porn with a lightness and hilarity that makes even the newly ordained feminist feel at home." (Scarlett Curtis, Sunday Times)

a great guide to modern feminism, for everyone.

I listen to the guilty feminist podcast and this book was not what the laugh out loud take on feminism I had expected, but in a really good way.

Takes all the best elements from the podcasts and then ramps it up to 11

This is a fantastic book.

I’m an avid listener to the Guilty Feminist Podcast and so even if this book had simply trotted out the best bits I would have been happy.

But it is so much more.
Much much more.

This book explained many difficult topics of feminism in a easy to understand but yet still detailed way. It was funny. It made me cry.

It’s a war cry for women and feminists everywhere, while still understanding our human frailties.

I want to buy this book and give it to everyone I meet. There are chapters that should be required reading in schools when it comes to explaining feminism, rape and FGM.

Most of all I just want to thank Deborah for writing it. For continuing to dare greatly and loving Don Draper.
