Shortlisted for the Green Carnation Prize 2014

Laurie Penny, one of our most prominent young voices of feminism and dissent, presents a trenchant report on our society today--and our society tomorrow, as she is willing to fight to see it.

Smart, clear-eyed, and irreverent, Unspeakable Things is a fresh look at gender and power in the twenty-first century, which asks difficult questions about dissent and desire, money and masculinity, sexual violence, menial work, mental health, queer politics, and the Internet.

Celebrated journalist and activist Laurie Penny draws on a broad history of feminist thought and her own experience in radical subcultures in America and Britain to take on cultural phenomena from the Occupy movement to online dating, give her unique spin on economic justice and freedom of speech, and provide candid personal insight to rally the defensive against eating disorders, sexual assault, and internet trolls. Unspeakable Things is a book that is eye-opening not only in the critique it provides, but also in the revolutionary alternatives it imagines.

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!
