Everywoman: One Woman’s Truth About Speaking the Truth
About this deal
Candid about being a young mum – ‘ most of the time – if I’m completely honest – it’s unremarkable, tedious and frankly a bit meh. Since winning the seat of Birmingham Yardley in 2015, Phillips has published two books and become a powerful activist for woman’s rights with her speeches in Parliament becoming headline news.
This title now has a new cover and t here is a chance that you may receive the edition with the old cover instead of the cover displayed here. It was pretty hard to deal with some of the sections, like when she talks about some of the horrific trolling that she has had to encounter. APA style: Everywoman: One Woman's Truth About Speaking the Truth by Labour MP Jess Phillips to be adapted for TV drama. I love the fact that she has a potty mouth and is also very brazen and open about her reservations about her life as an MP.Jess Phillips is not Everywoman (which is fine) but thinks that she is (which is really not fine at all).
Launched in partnership with The National Lottery, it aims to promote dialogue and support Parliamentarians working to nurture a more connected society.Whilst the Evening Standard said, “Phillips comes across as great company — not just passing the “Would you go for a drink with her? News from Nowhere will not obtain personal information from other organisations, and will not share, pass on or sell personal information that we hold about individuals to anyone else. So it’s kind of irrelevant if I thought some of the segues between arguments could have been a bit neater. Phillips provides strong comebacks and reasoning through the book on various issues such as why women in abusive relationships might not leave their partners – this reminded me of the “ Girl Up” book with its useful resources (I wonder if she’s read that and what she thinks of it. Self Promotion - it’s very refreshing to hear someone just straight up talk about how they had to promote themselves to get where they had got.
I attended one of Caitlin Moran’s Live tour dates on June 28th where no other than Jess herself was discussing Moran’s new publication and various taboo issues with brilliant clarity and once again that trademark honesty. Only time will tell, and she's not as passionately socialist or pro-worker as she is pro-women, but in the most part she embodies what an MP should be, a citizen who has worked her way up to a place where she can influence laws for the better. Jess is a state-educated, working class woman and also the current MP for Birmingham Yardley, she is often criticised in the media for being loud, outspoken and opinionated – all traits that if spoken about a man would be viewed positively. I’m glad I took a nice picture of this one for the blog a few days ago, as it wouldn’t be right to use the usual TBR picture, given that it didn’t actually hit my TBR at all. Even if you don’t agree with Jess Phillips’ political views at all, this is an important book to read and I would highly recommend it.Taking in chapters on motherhood, starting work, equality, politics and trolling, and more, she speaks about her own experiences and then places them within the context of (mainly women’s) general experiences.
