About this deal

Bates is scathing about Priti Patel’s support for an app to log women’s movements, on top of managing all the other gear they are advised to carry. The people who are supposed to protect us, teach us, present news to us, govern or bring justice on our behalf are upholding ideas that actively harm minorities, but hide behind the very effective, yet fictitious phenomenon of "isolated incidents". She was awarded a British Empire Medal for services to gender equality in the Queen's Birthday Honours list 2015 and has been named a woman of the year by Cosmopolitan, Red Magazine and The Sunday Times Magazine.

There are Big Caesars who set out to achieve total social control and Little Caesars who merely want to run an agreeable kleptocracy without opposition: from Julius Caesar and Oliver Cromwell through Napoleon and Bolivar, to Mussolini, Salazar, De Gaulle and Trump. And men not getting convicted because “they were stressed about their job, so it’s understandable that they took up skirt pictures of women on the bus”. Disabled women are twice as likely to suffer domestic abuse, but just one in 10 spaces in refuges is accessible to those with physical disabilities. Vooral een inzending voor The Everyday Sexism Project greep me aan, een oudere vrouw die zich verontschuldigde: zij had al die grensoverschrijdende incidenten getolereerd, ze was stil gebleven.The book unpicks systemic injustices, highlights their endless overlaps and makes for a brilliant and essential read (I only wish it didn’t need to be!

FIX THE SYSTEM, NOT THE WOMEN no fue el primer libro de feminismo que leí; sí el que más me ha marcado hasta ahora. people seem to be saying it’s not a good book as it’s nothing they didn’t already know but as woman of course we already know it, it is us, it is how we live what could you possibly read that was something you didn’t already know. I cant wait to read this book, it looks incredibly interesting but, I am disappointed that it arrived in such a poor condition.To have access to an abortion is and should be a given right to women, but removing that is sickening. This is as close to the truth, to the real story of the corruption, vulgarities, horrors, and lies of the Kingdom and its current despot as we are likely to get.

In recent years, books such as Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race and White Fragility have been bought in huge numbers by white people. Dari input yang masuk melalui situs Everyday Sexism Project, Bates kemudian memetakan setidaknya ada 5 ekosistem yang seharusnya bebenah.Bates’s central message, which she has developed through her Everyday Sexism Project, the online forum that has now received 200,000 stories of sexism and misogyny from all over the world, and books including Girl Up (2016) and Men Who Hate Women (2020), is that there is a spectrum of gender inequality. i don’t think men know or understand how imbedded it is, i genuinely believe they would be shocked and assume it was all hysteria when really this is still sugar coated in a palatable way for them. I think what I do find difficult to comprehend, is the fairly recent overturning of Roe v Wade in the United States. This book will infuriate you and open your eyes to so many injustices that you simply accept as “life as it is” presented with many accounts from real women and statistics that will shock, frighten and sadden you. Bates pursues her thesis across five key areas: education, policing, criminal justice, media and politics.
