Women's health

Gentlewoman (noun) A woman who meets the harsh pressures of modern life with thoughtfulness, care and kindness. She is confident; and without needing to shout, exudes a powerful presence.

'This is brilliant and timely' - Elizabeth Day

HOW TO BE A GENTLEWOMAN is pitched as somewhere between the bestselling non-fiction EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT LOVE by Dolly Alderton, and Nora Ephron for the Trump-aghast world. It will present an antidote to the often brutal and aggressive conditions of modern life by asking the reader to embrace a way of being that has gentleness (to oneself and others) at its centre. Lotte's first ever book weaves powerful memoir with practical advice and a psychological deep dive into what truly constitutes a meaningful and happy existence. It posits that it is engaging with others, being emotionally attuned, and deft both in negotiation and relationships that ultimately will help us to discover our real and lasting power.

Contributors will include Elizabeth Day, Romy Madley Croft (the lead singer of The xx), Paris Lees, Gina Martin, Clara Amfo, Alex Eagle, and Lorraine Candy as well as archaelogists, artists, happiness consultants, and academics.
