Synopsis

'Get your daughters to read this, but only after your partners and sons have finished it' Jo Brand



'An astute and persuasive page-turner' Observer

_____________________________________________________



Too often, we blame women. For walking home alone at night. For not demanding a seat at the table. For not overcoming the odds that are stacked against them.



This distracts us from the real problem: the failings and biases of a society that was not built for women. In this explosive book, feminist writer and activist Laura Bates exposes the systemic prejudice at the heart of five of our key institutions.



Education

Politics

Media

Policing

Criminal justice



Combining stories with shocking evidence, Fix the System, Not the Women is a blazing examination of sexual injustice and a rallying cry for reform.
