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.

The kind of MPs we need

This is a story of how a real representative of the people was elected. It’s also a great at explaining the trials and tribulations women go through and how we are still at heart only partially on the way to equality.

Unique Brummie slant on the world!

Never listened to a book like this. Brutally honest, hard hitting and thought provoking. A vital contribution to the modern day debate on gender relations.
