A modern feminist classic (Rachel Cooke Observer)

With clearsightedness and wry humour, this self-described 'gobby woman' proves public speech is no longer the preserve of maleness. More power to her. (Laura Garmeson FT)

... exposes the roots of today's expectations of how a woman should behave ... time for a change, she argues - and now! (Jenni Murray Guardian)

This book is a treasure, both as a fascinating read in itself and as a fine work of reference to correct our lazy misconceptions about an ancient world that still has much to instruct us today (Herald)

An urgent feminist cri de coeur, spot-on in its utterly reasonable plea that a woman 'who dares to open her mouth in public' actually be given a hearing. (Kirkus Reviews)

Brilliant (Jacqueline Rose Guardian)

Enlightening ... explains how misogyny works and why it is so resilient (Elif Shafak Guardian)

A sparkling and forceful manifesto (New York Times)

Clear, rich, subversive and witty (San Francisco Chronicle)

An irresistible call for women to speak up, act and redefine their power (People Magazine)

A year on from the allegations against Harvey Weinstein and the beginnings of #metoo movement Mary Beard revisits the gender agenda with new material on rape, consent and how the discussion has moved on.
