My thanks to the publishers and Alison Menzies PR for my copy of this book

Full of facts and figures, snappy quotes, events, infographics, statistics and key dates, We Are Feminist is a visual timeline celebrating 150 years of achievements of feminism..

My thoughts..

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to those brave pioneers who campaigned so diligently, and often at great personal cost, so that woman would have the right to be considered equal to men. 

Beautifully illustrated, and with a foreword by Helen Pankhurst, the great grand-daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, there are a myriad snippets of information in We are Feminist, which enlighten, and which look at the role of women in an ever changing world. It is filled to bursting with lots of fascinating facts we never knew we needed to know, from the rise of feminism, in the pioneering first-wave of the movement in the 1840s, when the French term féminisme was adopted, through to the 2017 Women's March which was attended by 20 million protesters in more that 20 countries across the world.

Presented in a very visual style both the infographics and inspirational quotes certainly help to get the feminist message across in a readable and informative way.


I have found so much to enjoy in this little book - I was extremely impressed with the amount of information that it contained, and have enjoyed reading through, discovering things I never knew, and finding huge inspiration in the quotes from prominent women, both past and present. I particularly liked the way that the book shines a light on what can be achieved when we stand together.
