This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
Ever since she was elected to Parliament in May 2015, Jess Phillips, the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley, has been making the headlines for doing what women are simply not supposed to do: speak up. Whether that's for talking about the time she was sexually assaulted, or reading out the names of one hundred and twenty women and girls who were murdered, or about the unnecessary VAT on sanitary products, Jess isn't afraid to stand up and tell the truth. Jess tells the truth even when that means she is threatened, often with rape or even with death. She knows exactly what it's like to be on the frontline in the fight for equality, what it's like to deal with sexist comments day in and day out, what it really means to be a woman trying to change things in a man's world.In EVERYWOMAN: One Woman's Truths About Speaking The Truth, Jess encourages all women to follow her lead. To stand up and speak up, even when it seems that the world is against them, to dare to alter that world and - maybe - make history. From growing up ininner-city Birmingham in a radical socialist family, through the trials of her teenage and student years, through working at Women's Aid and finally in the Houses of Parliament, Jess shares her experiences and her thoughts on what it means to be a woman today. Entertaining, inclusive and inspiring, EVERYWOMAN is an essential read.
