'A joyous multiplicity of writings incorporating collective manifestos, poetry, fiction, and autobiography . . . endlessly fascinating'

Catherine Taylor, Financial Times


'The Penguin Book of Feminist Writing rounds up the voices of women from across history to discuss the meaning and practice of feminism. This is a book that every person should read: the multiplicity of voices from various times and spaces allows women of the past alongside women of the present to be noisy about why feminism matters. It is a collective masterpiece'

Helen Carr, BBC History, Books of the Year


'Bulging with brilliant and exciting writing.  Its vast sweep takes us from the 15th century, when Christine de Pizan, a court writer in medieval France, imagined a City of Ladies where women would be safe from harassment, through to the present day, with work by Maggie Nelson, Eileen Myles, Rachel Cusk, Deborah Levy and Lola Olufemi'
