Beschreibung

Shortlisted for The Green Carnation Prize 2014

'This is not a fairytale. This is a story about how sex and money and power police our dreams.'

Clear-eyed, witty and irreverent, Laurie Penny is as ruthless in her dissection of modern feminism and class politics as she is in discussing her own experiences in journalism, activism and underground culture.

This is a book about poverty and prejudice, online dating and eating disorders, riots in the streets and lies on the television. The backlash is on against sexual freedom for men and women and social justice ­- and feminism needs to get braver.

Penny speaks for a new feminism that takes no prisoners, a feminism that is about justice and equality, but also about freedom for all. It's about the freedom to be who we are, to love who we choose, to invent new gender roles, and to speak out fiercely against those who would deny us those rights. It is a book that gives the silenced a voice ­- a voice that speaks of unspeakable things.

Laurie Penny is an award-winning author, columnist, journalist and screenwriter. Their seven books include Bitch Doctrine, Unspeakable Things and Everything Belongs to the Future. As a freelance journalist, they write about politics, social justice, pop culture, feminism, mental health and technology for places including the Guardian, Longreads, TIME, Buzzfeed, the New York Times, Vice, Salon, The Nation and the New Statesman. They were a 2014-15 Nieman Journalism Fellow at Harvard University. As a screenwriter, Laurie has worked on 'The Nevers' (HBO), 'The Haunting' (Netflix) and 'Carnival Row' (Amazon). Laurie Penny is based between London and Los Angeles.

Pennie schreibt für die Frauen, die bis jetzt keine Stimme in der feministischen Bewegung gefunden haben. Das sind nicht die Top 1%, die von der Frauenquote profitieren würde.

A strong political take at modern feminism. I highly recommend it to every young woman and man!
