‘Rousing, hopeful and important reading’ – Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women Had enough? Feeling hopeless? Don’t give up – join the rebellion. Activist, journalist, founding leader of the Women’s Equality Party and ‘modern-day suffragette’ (Evening Standard) Sophie Walker presents an inspiring, five-step journey to incorporating activism into our lives. Featuring stories of new and seasoned activists – including Amika George and Jack Monroe – campaigning on a range of issues from reproductive rights and poverty to the environment and access to education – the book shows us how to see activism not as a series of pitched battles but as a positive, lifelong learning experience. Escape the numbing effects of despair, learn to channel anger, arm yourself with hope, practise perseverance and connect with others compassionately. Five Rules for Rebellion explains how we can convert our confusion and impatience into a powerful force for change. ‘Thoroughly engaging, empowering and inspiring … blows invigorating air into the weary world of politics and makes you want to get out there NOW and do something about it’ – Ailbhe Smyth, co-director of Together For Yes and convenor of Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment
