In her book Difficult Women, journalist Helen Lewis argues that feminism’s success is down to complicated, contradictory, imperfect women, who fought each other as well as fighting for equal rights. you’ll meet the working-class suffragettes who advocated bombings and arson; the princess who discovered why so many women were having bad sex; the ‘striker in a sari’ who terrified Margaret Thatcher; and the lesbian politician who outraged the country. Funny, fearless and sometimes shocking, Helen shows why the feminist movement has succeeded – and what it should do next. The battle is difficult, and women must be difficult too.
