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.

Inside peak at life as a women in leadership

Thank you Jess Phillips.
Your authenticity emboldens and inspires. Your experience is universal. And I agree - we must encourage each other to speak up.

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.

Why bother ...

- the woman clearly thinks she knows it all - what could the rest of us mere mortal women that have walked the walk know - this is her experience not mine - it’s preachy and narcissist in my opinion and someone really should tell her we all have one we just don’t all choose to drone on about it - most of us are too busy to be navel gazing

Funny, warm and engaging.

Funny, warm and engaging. An extra push to keep speaking up and to support intelligent policies on domestic abuse. An insight into women in parliament and the best way to deal with trolls.

The kind of MPs we need

This is a story of how a real representative of the people was elected. It’s also a great at explaining the trials and tribulations women go through and how we are still at heart only partially on the way to equality.

Unique Brummie slant on the world!

Never listened to a book like this. Brutally honest, hard hitting and thought provoking. A vital contribution to the modern day debate on gender relations.
