Toksvig's Atlas: Eclectic Ramblings Around the World (Hardback)

£16.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

After the success of Toksvig's Almanac, which illuminated the untold stories of women from history, Sandi Toksvig has turned her attention to the hidden triumphs and challenges of women all around the world (and the occasional man). Divided into seven sections, one for each of the continents, it is an invigorating armchair journey in the company of the inimitable national treasure.



From the 22 syllables that can get a woman killed in Afghanistan, to the female bikers of Marrakesh, to the boxing club that saves Maori women's lives, these are stories that rarely escape the borders of their own countries. Until now.
