A fascinating look at feminism, and what it means to be a feminist, for girls and boys
A fantastic book for children aged 9+ that explains why we should all be feminists.
Divided into sections such as Work and Money, Politics and Power, Media, Education, Family and Bodies, the book looks at the how feminism and the feminist movement, have affected each area in turn throughout history, and at the issues they are working to combat today. It also presents key figures in the fight for equal rights, from the Pankhursts to Germaine Greer and Malala Yousafzai, and looks at modern initiatives such as Emma Watson's He for She campaign.
People in the public eye put their opinions across, from Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney and Chief Executive of Girlguiding UK Julie Bentley, to rapper, comedian, actor and screenwriter Ben Bailey Smith aka Doc Brown.
