What is a Guilty Feminist?


In 2015 I described myself as 'guilty feminist' for the first time. My goals were noble but my concerns were trivial. I wanted desperately for women to be taken seriously in leadership roles all over the world, but I also wanted to look good sitting down naked.

Reviews:


'An incredible read on confidence, gender and looking after ourselves and each other' -  Aisling Bea


'Deborah Frances-White's book has all the joy, complexity, importance and pleasure of The Guilty Feminist podcast' -  Stella Duffy


'Slicing through the fun and foibles of twenty-first-century womanhood with deft and funny prose, the book covers everything "from our noble goals to our worst hypocrisies". Existing fans of her podcast and newcomers alike will love this irreverent guide to a very modern tug of war' - Red


'The Guilty Feminist is accessible and honest, written with warmth. And the openness with which she and other contributors discuss their struggles make the book feel like a discussion with friends over a glass of wine . . . it is full of inspiring and challenging ideas, encouraging every woman to say: "I get to be heard. I deserve to be seen"' -  Daily Express


'Brims with facts and inspiring women you might not have heard of but are now glad you have ... [Deborah Frances-White's] mixture of wit, fallibility and inclusivity is immensely appealing ... The book emboldens women to find their voice, to say no more often, yes less, and to demand more than the 75p in the pound they get paid compared with men. Her genius for satire is what makes her voice so sonorous - her Open Letter from the Gentlemen of Hollywood, a riposte to the Weinstein saga, is worth the cover price alone' - Sunday Times


'A passionate, funny, fresh, thought-provoking read, as engaging as it's informative' - Barbara Ellen, Observer


'A thorough look at how to be a better feminist and a better person, but manages to be funny and entertaining too ... I really appreciate that it looks at what we can practically do to make things better' -  Amy Jones, The Pool
