Personal and fearless - a call to arms for feminists new, old and as yet unrealised by one of our most outspoken feminist writers, Clementine Ford.


Her incendiary debut Fight Like A Girl is an essential manifesto for feminists, and exposes just how unequal the world continues to be for women. Crucially, it is a call to arms for all women to rediscover the fury that has been suppressed by a society that still considers feminism a threat.

Fight Like A Girl will make you laugh, cry and scream. But above all it will make you demand and fight for a world in which women have real equality and not merely the illusion of it.

‘A friend recently told me that the things I write are powerful for her because they have the effect of making her feel angry instead of just empty. I want to do this for all women and young girls - to take the emptiness and numbness they feel about being a girl in this world and turn it into rage and power. I want to teach all of them how to Fight Like A Girl.’
