How do you feel empowered when depression leaves you powerless?
How do you promote self-esteem when your internal critic always shouts the loudest?
How do you change the world when you can't get out of bed?
In the second collection by the performance poet heralded by Laura Bates of Everyday Sexism as 'one of the powerful voices of young feminism today', Megan Beech chronicles her experiences as a young feminist dealing with mental illness.
This follow up to Beech's feisty feminist debut When I Grow Up I Want to be Mary Beard probes the power and vulnerability that comes from being a depressed, aspirant, intelligent and flawed young woman in 21st Century Tory Britain.
