The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls
‘We need fewer road maps towards a treaty with patriarchy, and more manifestos on how to destroy it.’
The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls identifies seven sins women and girls are socialised to avoid anger, attention, profanity, ambition, power, violence and lust. With essays on each, Mona Eltahawy creates a stunning manifesto encouraging women worldwide to defy, disobey and disrupt the patriarchy. Drawing on her own life and the work of intersectional activists from around the world, #MeToo and the Arab Spring, Eltahawy s work defines what it is to be a feminist now.
