Shami Chakrabarti: Of Women

‘This book is likely to appeal to people who […] worry that western feminism is in danger of disappearing up itself in pursuit of rather glossy and superficial concerns.’ The Guardian

In her book Of Women, the leading human rights campaigner and Shadow Attorney General, tackles what she considers to be the world’s biggest human rights issue: the position of women in society. In conversation with journalist and author Gaby Hinsliff, she discusses her view that gender injustice continues to influence health, wealth, education, representation, opportunity and security, and suggests ways of placing gender at the centre of progressive political action.
