Waterstones Says

Inspired by the trailblazing website written by women and non-binary people of colour, I Will Not Be Erased is a propulsive set of essays from the site’s contributors to their younger selves. Raw, powerful and immensely important, this is essential reading.

'A radical, beautiful, world-changing collection of writing that we all need to read.'  - Scarlett Curtis, Feminists Don't Wear Pink

gal-dem, the award-winning online and print magazine, is created by women and non-binary people of colour. In this life-affirming, moving and joyous collection of fourteen essays, gal-dem's talented writers use raw material from their teenage years - diaries, poems and chat histories - to give advice to their younger selves and those growing up today.

gal-dem have been praised by the Guardian for being '...the agents of change we need', and these essays tackle important subjects including race, gender, mental health and activism, making this essential reading.
