100 in stock
Authors Laura Bates and Jacqueline Rose discuss the increase in violence against women and how we need to ‘Fix the System, Not the Women’.
Too often, we blame women. For walking home alone at night. For not asking – or not asking forcefully enough – for a seat at the table. For not overcoming the odds that are stacked against them. In this explosive book, feminist writer and activist Laura Bates lays bare the patterns of misogyny that harm and endanger us all. She exposes the systemic prejudice at the heart of five key institutions in our society: education, politics, media policing, and criminal justice.
Combining stories with shocking evidence, Fix the System, Not the Women is a blazing examination of sexual injustice and a rallying cry for reform.
Why has violence – particularly against women – become exponentially more prominent and visible across the world? Tracking multiple forms of today’s violence – ranging through trans rights and #MeToo; the suffragette movement and the sexual harassment faced by migrant women; and the sharp increase in domestic violence over the course of the pandemic – On Violence and On Violence Against Women by Jacqueline Rose is a blazing exploration of injustice and a formidable call to action from a world-renowned feminist thinker.
