Five Rules for Rebellion: Let's Change the World Ourselves (Hardback)Sophie Walker (author)
- Coming soon
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.

This book - by one of the most visionary women I have ever met - will tell you how.' -- Emma Thompson, actor, screenwriter and activist.
'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
