The popular journalist and broadcaster brings us a history of feminism in 11 fights.

The Well-behaved women don't make history: difficult women do.

Strikers in saris. Bomb-throwing suffragettes. The pioneer of the refuge movement who became a men's rights activist.

Forget feel-good heroines: meet the feminist trailblazers who have been airbrushed from history for being 'difficult' - and discover how they made a difference.

Here are their stories in all their shocking, funny and unvarnished glory. This book has received rave reviews from the likes of Caitlin Moran, Hadley Freeman and Mary Beard.

Sponsored by The Open University in Scotland
