Deborah Frances-White Pens Guilty Feminist Book

The multitalented Deborah Frances-White has written a book based on her hit podcast The Guilty Feminist, to be published by Virago.

The book includes exclusive interviews with comedians Zoë Coombs Marr, Bisha K. Ali and Susan Wokoma as well as a piece by Hannah Gadsby. The book also features interviews with activists, including Jessamyn Stanley, Becca Bunce and Leyla Hussein. Virago describes it as “funny, joyful, frank and inspiring book about embracing both feminism and our imperfections…

From inclusion to the secret power of rom coms, from effective activism to what poker can tell us about gender, Deborah Frances-White explores what it means to be a 21st-century feminist, and encourages us to make the world better for all women.”

Deborah Frances-White said: “In 2015 I described myself as a “guilty feminist” for the first time. My goals were noble but my concerns were trivial. I wanted desperately for women to be taken seriously in leadership roles all over the world, but I also wanted to look good sitting down naked.”

The Guilty Feminist book is due for release on 6th September, Deborah Frances-White will be going on a book tour to promote the publication.

Sara Barron: Enemies Closer

It’s perhaps bad form to start a review by commenting on what the comic is wearing but I reckon, in saying that I was slightly distracted for a minute by her incredible E.T. shirt, Sara Barron would think I am just being perceptive. (I need that shirt.)
