Fight Like a Girl is a personal and fearless call to arms by feminist writer and scourge of trolls and misogynists everywhere, Clementine Ford. Her incendiary debut is for feminists new, old and soon-to-be, exposing just how unequal the modern world is for women. An invitation to rediscover the fury suppressed by society, Fight Like a Girl pushes back against a world that still considers feminism a threat. In conversation with Jane Caro.
