Publisher's Summary

This is a book about poverty and prejudice, online dating and eating disorders, and lies on the television. The backlash is on against sexual freedom for men and women and social justice. Penny speaks for a new feminism that is about justice and equality. It’s about the freedom to be who we are, to love who we choose, to invent new gender roles, and to speak out fiercely against those who would deny us those rights.

What the Critics Say

"As Penny demonstrates… we are dealing with a new world order. This book is funny and cheeky and refreshingly generous." (The Observer)

"Laurie Penny can certainly coin a phrase. She writes well, inclusively and cogently with passion." (The Herald

    "A book to explain your life to you"

    Laurie Penny speaks those unspeakable things women and girls of every age have carried like stones in their pockets. It's a must read for them, a manual, a thesaurus of articulation of their pain and oppression and their Love (not TM) and joy. Though men and boys struggle to acknowledge how much their lives have improved because of the feminist revolution they too will take so much of value from Unspeakable Things. Read it. Share it. Talk about it. Speak from it. We owe Ms. Penny one.
