City Books present Caroline Criado-Perez launching her new book Do It Like A Woman.
From the woman who took on the Bank Of England, Twitter, and the criminal justice system, ‘Do It Like A Woman’ is a timely and necessary celebration of women’s rights activists around the world and a call to arms for doing it like a woman…
Every day, all around the world, women are reinventing what it means to be female in cultures where power, privilege or basic freedoms are all too often equated with being male.
Here, Caroline Criado-Perez, one of the most vocal and tenacious campaigners of her generation, tells her story of campaigning for women’s rights and dealing with cyber backlash as well as introducing us to some of the most pioneering women campaigners across the globe.
From the female fighter pilot in Afghanistan who escaped from the Taliban to the anti-FGM campaigners in the UK as well as across the world, ‘Do It Like A Woman’ is a celebration of private heroisms and public triumphs, and is an inspiring manifesto for women everywhere.
Caroline Criado-Perez is a British journalist and feminist activist whose work has appeared in The Times, the Telegraph, the Guardian, the Independent, and the New Statesman. In 2013, she won the Liberty Human Rights Campaigner Of The Year Award and was named one of the Guardian’s People Of The Year. She famously led a campaign to get women better represented on banknotes.
This special evening will feature an exclusive book reading, question and answer session, plus the chance to purchase signed first edition copies of ‘Do It Like A Woman’ at discount.
