About the Author

Sophie Walker is a feminist activist, founding leader of the Women's Equality Party, co-director of Activate Collective, a fund to support female community activists to run for political office, and chief executive of Young Women's Trust, which campaigns for economic justice for young women. She is passionate about rebuilding society for and with (extra)ordinary women. She stood for London Mayor in 2016, winning a quarter of a million votes, and in 2017 stood for election to Parliament on a manifesto of equal pay, investment in care and an end to violence against women. She was named by Vogue in 2018 as one of the 'New Suffragettes', was dubbed by the Daily Telegraph 'this generation's Emmeline Pankhurst', and is a regular contributor to broadcast and print media on the subject of women's rights, representation and rebellion. She is a long-term campaigner for disability rights and worked for 20 years as an international reporter. In her spare time she is a keen runner.


Rousing, hopeful and important reading -- Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women
The book is a manifesto, a call to arms, and a reminder at a time of increasing tribalism that activism and leadership doesn't have to be a series of pitched battles; it can be a collaborative, enriching experience. Less a polemic than a pep talk, it is an antidote to the rising tide of despair. -- The Herald
Sophie Walker will pick you up, dust you off and put the fire in your belly to change the world. Whether you're a new activist or have been in the arena for a while, this book offers sustenance for everyone -- Nimko Ali, CEO and co-founder of The Five Foundation and author of What We're Told Not To Talk About
As it becomes depressingly clear that those presently in power are not taking the urgent action required on climate change, poverty and inequality, we must ourselves take action wherever and whenever we can. This book - by one of the most visionary women I have ever met - will tell you how. -- Emma Thompson, actor, screenwriter and activist
Sophie is an extraordinary communicator. I've seen her inspire thousands to activism. This book will inspire many more -- Catherine Mayer, co-founder of the Women's Equality Party and author of Attack of the 50 Ft. Women
Thoroughly engaging, empowering and inspiring ... blows invigorating air into the weary world of politics and makes you want to get out there NOW and do something about it -- Ailbhe Smyth, co-director of Together For Yes and convenor of Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment
Short, clear and practical -- Courier Mail
