It's not an easy read and I did begin to feel a bit depressed reading it because it compounded all my worst fears about the inequalities that still need to be sorted out. If any woman has felt uncertain as to whether or not her feelings of being put second in society, undermined and isolated by society, then this book helps you to understand that your feelings are founded in bias towards men. I find this to be a powerful, thought-provoking opener, as I think some women, myself included may not realise that certain behaviour, is actually sexism, and we were the victims of that.

Grateful that she has written such important books for us to do with what we will, but then I'm also sad that she has had to. Maybe the lady is from a different generation and those who she collected data from (experiences) but a lot of the things didn't seem to be common in my generation, maybe they were flattened. FIX THE SYSTEM, NOT THE WOMEN no fue el primer libro de feminismo que leí; sí el que más me ha marcado hasta ahora. Blood and Oil is the explosive untold story of how Mohammed bin Salman and his entourage grabbed power in the Middle East and acquired a network of Western allies - including well-known US bankers, Hollywood figures, and politicians - all eager to help the charming and crafty crown prince.

This is essential reading for absolutely everyone, it made my stomach turn and made me incredibly sad. Too often, decisions about whether or not to proceed to trial for rape rely on whether the woman fits the societal profile of the “perfect victim”: ie, those who are “sweet and pretty and innocent and careful and didn’t stray off the path or talk to the wolf”.

Laura is a contributor at Women Under Siege, a New York-based project tackling rape in conflict worldwide and she is patron of SARSAS, Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support. Listing fact after devastating fact that will be all too familiar to the female reader, Fix the System Not the Women makes for a tough read.

Zwaar omdat het herkenbaar is, omdat je het eigenlijk al wel weet en nu opeens alles bij elkaar wordt voorgeschoteld. Investigado, con testimonios, citas textuales, FTSNTW es un libro que expone los prejuicios y las violencias sistemáticas dentro del sistema Británico y sus instituciones (de seguridad, educativas, políticas, medios de comunicación, etc. There are Big Caesars who set out to achieve total social control and Little Caesars who merely want to run an agreeable kleptocracy without opposition: from Julius Caesar and Oliver Cromwell through Napoleon and Bolivar, to Mussolini, Salazar, De Gaulle and Trump. Disabled women are twice as likely to suffer domestic abuse, but just one in 10 spaces in refuges is accessible to those with physical disabilities.

What if women can’t network, mentor, charm, assert and lean in their way out of sexism because this is a system that is rigged against them? Even if it makes you rage and scream and shout at all the inequalities women are subjected to repeatedly, it still instills a hope: that by making our voices heard, by never giving up in the face of adversities, we will prevail and receive, once and for all, access to equal rights. Of course you wouldn't be aware of something if it doesn't affect you - you don't have to, but that's just blissful ignorance.Bates also reminds us that if we want to tackle oppression in one sphere, we need to be aware of its overlap with others. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In reality, every democracy, however sophisticated or stable it may look, has been attacked or actually destroyed by a would-be Caesar, from Ancient Greece to the present day.

She has judged the Women’s Prize, the YA Book Prize, the Children's Laureate and the RSL Giles St Aubyn awards for non-fiction. This distracts us from the real problem: the failings and biases of a society that was not built for women. Hundreds already exist, “ignored and unused” in reports and campaign materials of feminist and civil rights organisations.

people seem to be saying it’s not a good book as it’s nothing they didn’t already know but as woman of course we already know it, it is us, it is how we live what could you possibly read that was something you didn’t already know.
