Everyday Sexism began as a social media project, when the author shared her experiences with street harassment. Soon, she was getting millions of tweets and retweets from other women around the world sharing their stories of sexual harassment, discrimination, and assault. Bates shares some of these stories in the book but also offers inspiration toward a real change in the normalization of sexism in our world.
“Often shocking, sometimes amusing and always poignant, everyday sexism is a protest against inequality and a manifesto for change.” (Barnes and Noble)
“You may think you’re familiar with the facts in Everyday Sexism. But nothing can prepare you for the emotional punch of hearing the stories of so many real women, from so many backgrounds, each struggling in a world that refuses to see them as fully human. Laura Bates deftly makes visible the spider web of oppression that holds us back and binds us all together.” (Jaclyn Friedman, co-author of Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape)
