Présentation de l'éditeur
Women have for generations been silenced into being “nice” and “acceptable,” and taught to not upset anyone. Rosjke Hasseldine cracks open the reality of women’s emotional lives and exposes how this kind of emotional silence is internalised and passed on from generation to generation, and is toxic for everyone, especially mothers and daughters.
This book is emotional food. It strips away women’s learned silence and launches the women’s movement into a new way of thinking that has until now been ignored: how sexism, inequality, and invisibility impacts how women feel about themselves. With questions and exercises, Rosjke teaches what it means to really live up to The Silent Female Scream motto: “That every female has the right to be heard, valued and respected and to know that anything less is just not okay.”
