“We’re women and we’re kick-ass. And that’s the truth.”
I loved hearing a first-hand account of a woman in leadership – in particular in Parliament. This book and the experiences of Jess Philips really empowered me to make a difference at a grassroots level. Her story really helps to break down those barriers between the electorate and their representatives, something we desperately need at the moment.
What I realised when I was reading this, is that we’re all results of our upbringing and our experiences. The things that Jess Phillips saw and heard about during her time at Women’s Aid shaped her values and that happens on all sides of the political spectrum. She’s quite the inspiration.
Ultimately, well worth a read but be prepared to have your inner activist burst out.
