This is a super exciting event and we are absolutely delighted to be hosting both Sophie Walker AND Hannah MacInnes to discuss Sophie’s new book, Five Rules for Rebellion. As feminists, we pride ourselves on pushing for womens equality and empowerment, but sometimes our words feel empty. Sometimes we feel we aren’t doing enough. Sometimes we don’t even know where to start taking action. Whether that’s in the fight for equality, the climate, poverty, more, where can we start? Well Sophie may just have the answer…
‘As it becomes depressingly clear that those presently in power are not taking the urgent action required on climate change, poverty and inequality, we must ourselves take action wherever and whenever we can. This book – by one of the most visionary women I have ever met – will tell you how.’ Emma Thompson
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.
