'Rousing, hopeful and important reading' - Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women Had enough? Feeling hopeless? Don't give up - join the rebellion. Activist, journalist, founding leader of the Women's Equality Party and 'modern-day suffragette' (Evening Standard) Sophie Walker presents an inspiring, five-step journey to incorporating activism into our lives. Featuring stories of new and seasoned activists - including Amika George and Jack Monroe - campaigning on a range of issues from reproductive rights and poverty to the environment and access to education - the book shows us how to see activism not as a series of pitched battles but as a positive, lifelong learning experience. Escape the numbing effects of despair, learn to channel anger, arm yourself with hope, practise perseverance and connect with others compassionately. Five Rules for Rebellion explains how we can convert our confusion and impatience into a powerful force for change. 'Thoroughly engaging, empowering and inspiring ... blows invigorating air into the weary world of politics and makes you want to get out there NOW and do something about it' - Ailbhe Smyth, co-director of Together For Yes and convenor of Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment

La nostra recensione

'Rousing, hopeful and important reading' -- Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women 'The book is a manifesto, a call to arms, and a reminder at a time of increasing tribalism that activism and leadership doesn't have to be a series of pitched battles; it can be a collaborative, enriching experience. Less a polemic than a pep talk, it is an antidote to the rising tide of despair.' -- The Herald 'Sophie Walker will pick you up, dust you off and put the fire in your belly to change the world. Whether you're a new activist or have been in the arena for a while, this book offers sustenance for everyone' -- Nimko Ali, CEO and co-founder of The Five Foundation and author of What We're Told Not To Talk About 'As it becomes depressingly clear that those presently in power are not taking the urgent action required on climate change, poverty and inequality, we must ourselves take action wherever and whenever we can. This book - by one of the most visionary women I have ever met - will tell you how.' -- Emma Thompson, actor, screenwriter and activist 'If you want to be an activist, Sophie's book is essential reading. If you don't, Sophie's book will convince you otherwise. A rousing, urgent reminder of how collective action can elicit change, and why we must all integrate activism into our lives.' -- Amika George, founder of Free Periods 'Sophie is an extraordinary communicator. I've seen her inspire thousands to activism. This book will inspire many more' -- Catherine Mayer, co-founder of the Women's Equality Party and author of Attack of the 50 Ft. Women 'Thoroughly engaging, empowering and inspiring ... blows invigorating air into the weary world of politics and makes you want to get out there NOW and do something about it' -- Ailbhe Smyth, co-director of Together For Yes and convenor of Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment 'Short, clear and practical' -- Courier Mail
