Publisher's Summary

If you're thinking, 'Jess, who?' then I'm glad that there was something about 'everywoman' and 'truth' that caught your eye. Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about. Because I'm a woman with a cause, I have been called a feminazi witch and a murderer and threatened with rape. The Internet attracts a classy crowd. So, speaking the truth isn't always easy, but I believe it's worth it. And I want you to believe it, too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything. By demanding to be heard, by dealing with our imposter syndrome, by being cheerleaders, doers not sayers, creating our own networks and by daring to believe that we can make a difference, we can. We're women and we're kick-ass. And that's the truth.

So worthwhile

A worthwhile book to write and to read. I am so glad Jess Phillips took the time and effort, and continues to in her very worthwhile life, helping society as a whole at every turn. It's inspiring to all, upsetting at times and brutally honest on pretty much every page. It's deeply political, informative and rallying. I will miss her voice! I am telling everyone I know to read it. It's for everyone.
