‘A great manifesto for all those women who have never been very good at being well-behaved’, Mary Beard 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 workingclass 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. In conversation with Tom Gatti, Deputy Editor of the New Statesman
