'A sharp-witted, whip-smart gift to the stale national media landscape. This book will revolutionise the discourse and readers' souls simultaneously.' Grace Tame 'Brace yourself for an engaging, heart-stirring read that challenges and inspires. It's a powerful call to action for a fairer world – an absolute must-read!' Chantelle Otten 'Intersectional feminist cheek, underscored by incisive intellectual commentary. It's great. Read it!' Tarang Chawla 'Hannah Ferguson doesn't take a backward step in flaying what underscores the inequality at the heart of our society while at the same time offering humour, heart and tangible solutions for fixing the mess we've left new generations.' A searing, devastating and unflinching view of what's gone wrong – and most importantly, how we take back power.' Amy Remeikis
