Drawing on archival research and interviews, Difficult Women is a funny, fearless and sometimes shocking narrative history, which shows why the feminist movement has succeeded – and what it should do next. Helen Lewis argues that too many feminist pioneers have been whitewashed or forgotten in our modern search for feel-good, inspirational heroines. Interspersed with personal insights into her own behaviour and reactions, Lewis reclaims the history of feminism as a history of difficult women. The battle is difficult, and we must be difficult too.
