Helen Lewis
Difficult Women

Acclaimed journalist and festival favourite Helen Lewis presents her first book – a survey of the women who refused to shut up and sit down. Including the working-class suffragettes advocating bombings and arson, the ‘striker in a sari’ who terrified Margaret Thatcher and the 21st-century feminists fighting for access to abortion services, Lewis’s funny, fearless and sometimes shocking book is both celebration and call to arms.
