Bomb-throwing suffragettes. The pioneer of the refuge movement who became a men’s rights activist. Forget feel-good heroines: meet the feminist trailblazers who have been airbrushed from history for being ‘difficult’ – and discover how they made a difference. Here are their stories in all their shocking, funny and unvarnished glory. ** Shortlisted in the 2020 Parliamentary Book Awards ** ‘All the history you need to understand why you’re so furious, angry and still hopeful about being a woman now. A book that is part intellectual weapon in your handbag, part cocktail with a friend’ Caitlin Moran’Compulsive, rigorous, unforgettable, hilarious and devastating’ Hadley Freeman ‘A great manifesto for all those women who have never been very good at being well-behaved.’ Mary Beard ‘Difficult Women is full of vivid detail, jam-packed with research and fizzing with provocation’ Sunday Times
