Read full description of the books:
In The Equality Illusion, 'the most influential young feminist in the country' (Guardian) and UK Feminista founder Kat Banyard argues passionately and articulately that feminism continues to be one of the most urgent and relevant social justice campaigns today.
Women have made huge strides in equality over the last century. And yet:
Women working full-time in the UK are paid on average 17% less an hour than men
1 in 3 women worldwide has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused because of her gender
Of parliamentary seats across the globe only 15% are held by women and fewer than 20% of UK MPs are women
96% of executive directors of the UK's top hundred companies are men
Structuring the book around a normal day, Banyard sets out the major issues for twenty-first century feminism, from work and education to sex, relationships and having children. She draws on her own campaigning experience as well as academic research and dozens of her own interviews. The book also includes information on how to get involved in grassroots action.
