Do It Like a Woman cover

The reissue of a brilliant, necessary manifesto for women everywhere.

In the last five years, the feminist movement has seen a radical upswell of energy and activism. We have been inspired by #LeanIn, we have found solidarity in #MeToo. We've pushed one another to be stronger and try harder. Caroline Criado-Perez's landmark book of feminist inspiration introduces us to the pioneers who motivated us to do it like a woman, including a female fighter pilot in Afghanistan; a Chilean revolutionary; the Russian punks who rocked out against Putin; and the Iranian journalist who dared to uncover her hair. This is a brilliant, necessary manifesto for women everywhere.

Striking... It is refreshing to read a feminist work informed by lives far removed from that of the author. There's no doubt that she has researched widely.
