Publisher's Summary

If you're thinking, 'Jess, who?' then I'm glad that there was something about 'everywoman' and 'truth' that caught your eye. Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about. Because I'm a woman with a cause, I have been called a feminazi witch and a murderer and threatened with rape. The Internet attracts a classy crowd. So, speaking the truth isn't always easy, but I believe it's worth it. And I want you to believe it, too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything. By demanding to be heard, by dealing with our imposter syndrome, by being cheerleaders, doers not sayers, creating our own networks and by daring to believe that we can make a difference, we can. We're women and we're kick-ass. And that's the truth.

Decent book, but why the Corbyn hate?

This book gave me a good insight into why it is difficult for women to get into politics. I enjoyed hearing about the author's own experiences. She explains her experience of trolling, sexism within parliament, solidarity between female politicians and her views on all female shortlists. I did feel like all of this could have been said in fewer words though. She also hinted at some anti-Corbyn sentiments but these were not well-explained or justified, much more information would be needed to persuade me against Corbyn. So in all, a decent book but her lack of support for Corbyn puts me off recommending.
