Waterstones Says

Unequivocally debunking the myth that acts of violence towards women are merely 'isolated incidents,' the groundbreaking author of Everyday Sexism and Men Who Hate Women lays bare the patterns of systemic misogyny that result in shockingly high numbers of women losing their lives.

Too often, we blame women. For walking home alone at night. For not demanding a seat at the table. For not overcoming the odds that are stacked against them.

This distracts us from the real problem: the failings and biases of a society that was not built for women. In this explosive book, feminist writer and activist Laura Bates exposes the systemic prejudice at the heart of five of our key institutions.

  • Education,
  • Politics,
  • Media,
  • Policing &
  • Criminal justice.

Combining stories with shocking evidence, Fix the System, Not the Women is a blazing examination of sexual injustice and a rallying cry for reform.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Entertaining and informative. Its perfectly intelligent advice is in dire need of being put into practice. Get your daughters to read this, but only after your partners and sons have finished it’    - Jo Brand

'I inhaled this. It is INCREDIBLE. Absolute perfection' - Joeli Brearley, founder of Pregnant Then Screwed

'An astute and persuasive page-turner, a clear-sighted, compelling examination of injustice' - Observer

‘An urgent and important book. I read it with rage and anger at the injustices and inequalities, at how women are shamed and how they internalise this shame, and how they are held responsible for creating change rather than holding the systems and societal structures accountable for their oppression. But in the end, I read this with great optimism and hope. Because if we need to change this world, for us, and for our daughters, we have to fix the system. And this book is a blistering manifesto for this change'  - Dr Pragya Agarwal

‘Powerful . . . a summary of the injustices women face — and the way that these interact with other forms of prejudice’ - Sunday Times

'I am in awe of Laura Bates and her ability to perfectly balance facts and her personal experiences, opinions and emotions. Her writing is nothing short of perfect' - Sofie Hagen, author of Happy Fat

‘Timely. Buy it for the men in your life’  - Press Association

'An almighty roar of a book' - Terri White, author of Coming Undone

I challenge any man to read this book and still deny there’s a problem - New Statesman
