Unspeakable Things: Sex, Lies and RevolutionUnspeakable Things: Sex, Lies and Revolution by Laurie Penny

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I have heard this book mentioned in the same breath as Bad Feminist: Essays but this is a much angrier, more focused manifesto than that. Penny is a sharp writer and eager for the take down of the patriarchal system. But it is not just a polemic. It is a story of many people's (Penny's and others) suffering and abuse at the hands of a system that works only for a select few. Passionate and important, this is another book you want to force into everyone's hands and brains and make them examine their own lives and the society we live in.
