    Women are standing up and #shoutingback. In a culture that's driven by social media, for the first time women are using this online space (@EverydaySexism www.everydaysexism.com) to come together, share their stories, and encourage a new generation to recognise the problems that women face. This book is a call to arms in a new wave of feminism and it proves sexism is endemic - socially, politically, and economically. But women won't stand for it.

They told you to wear longer skirts, avoid going out late at night, and move in groups - never accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run in more easily than heels.
