    Opening lines: ‘I wish you a world where you’re safe and whole.’

    Fantastic. The first poem/piece by Laura Bates is especially brilliant and poignant.

    Pretty good, a fast read. Owen Sheers’ essay was written first, last year - actually it’s a poem commissioned by the Hay Festival. It’s good and he gets quite far at seeing the patriarchal world through the eyes of the “other,” the underprivileged and silenced majority. However Laura Bates’s essay nails it. It’s far more concise, therefore sharper and harder hitting. I found myself getting angry... because of course we shouldn’t still have to put up with this shit. But she presents it so clearly Pretty good, a fast read. Owen Sheers’ essay was written first, last year - actually it’s a poem commissioned by the Hay Festival.

    I love Laura's poem and like Owen's though there are things that need to be worded better in each, I think. Laura seems to hit the nail on the head for me, though. Whereas Owen does not. I can't say much about what he writes for fear of spoiling it. I agree with him mostly, I just don't know whether I can agree that (little spoiler) men are the only issue with this race. Mhmm. That's basically what he says. Now, honestly, I think that could just be due to the way he's worded it rather than what I love Laura's poem and like Owen's though there are things that need to be worded better in each, I think.

    An important essay and an important poem about gender and equality. Articulately and compassionately outlines the problems that our current way of treating men and women damages both, and can be changed.

    The only redeeming quality is that Laura Bates’ letter would be amazing for use in schools and college to break down societal gender pressures and expectations. Sheers’ section was ok. Not too overwhelmed by anything in this book, it’s stuff that has been said for years now.
