Synopsis

From 'Not all men,' to 'You can't say anything these days...', No Offence, But... is an empowering roadmap for tackling those problematic, harmful conversation-stoppers. 'In my work as a gender equality activist, the question I most get asked is, 'how do you respond to...?', followed by one of those phrases that leave us feeling frustrated and tongue-tied. This book is designed to help you do just that without losing your cool.' In our increasingly polarised society, having productive discussions about social justice issues has never been more challenging, or more crucial. From the notorious ('not all men,' 'I don't see colour') to the insidious ('to play devil's advocate...', 'I don't do politics'), too often, antagonistic or problematic responses threaten to distract and derail our most urgent conversations. Tackling twenty of the most common conversation-stoppers, No Offence, But... equips readers with the knowledge, tools and tricks to respond with confidence. Alongside other writers, educators and advocates, acclaimed activist Gina Martin helps us to unpick these phrases, understand why they are harmful and feel empowered to change the conversation. Featuring chapters from Aja Barber, Ben Hurst, Cathy Reay, Charlie Craggs, Daze Aghaji, Ione Gamble, Koa Beck, Mariam Kemple-Hardy and Azadeh Hosseini, Nova Reid and Salma El-Wardany.
