Everywoman: One Woman’s Truth About Speaking the Truth by Jess Phillips

Joyfully candid and very funny. Guardian

Jess Phillips knows the truth . . . and here she shows how scary and sad as well as joyful and liberating the answers can be. Damian Barr

Everywoman has all the laughs [of Lena Dunham and Caitlin Moran] with a backbone of real glinting anger . . .there were so many funny and wise things on each page that whittling them down into a review seemed impossible. Julie Birchill, Spectator

As fresh as mountain air amid the Westminster tumbleweed. Metro

Arresting. Observer

If you’re thinking, ‘Jess, who?’ then I’m glad that there was something about ‘Everywoman’ and ‘truth’ that caught your eye.

Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about. Because I’m a woman with a cause, I have been called a feminazi witch, a murderer and threatened with rape. The internet attracts a classy crowd.

So, speaking the truth isn’t always easy but I believe it’s worth it. And I want you to believe it too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything.

By demanding to be heard, by dealing with our imposter syndrome, by being cheerleaders, doers not sayers, creating our own networks and by daring to believe that we can make a difference, we can.

We’re women and we’re kick-ass. And that’s the truth.

Books: Everywoman: One Woman’s Truth About Speaking the Truth by Jess Phillips

How do MPs find time to write so many books? With a propensity to overshare. Teenage Phillips thought Courtney Love should play her in a film of her life. Aged 19, a man stuck his hand up her skirt in a club. She slapped him in response — but it was she who was thrown out. A year ago, she read out in the Commons the names of the women killed by men in the previous 12 months. That latter idea is tinged with sadness, though: Jo Cox — a passionate advocate for sorority — was a friend.

Everywoman Summary

Her humour and passion shine through every page. Loved it. Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about.

Her humour and passion shine through every page. Loved it. Not to denigrate the talent of Lena Dunham and Caitlin Moran but Everywoman has all the laughs theirs have with a backbone of real glinting anger, which has not had to manicure and mutate itself in order to maintain a cool media career I have had to review loads of books which I couldn't stand. This was the first which I dreaded going back to because there were so many funny and wise things on each page that whittling them down into a review seemed impossible.
