Part polemic and part manifesto, The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls offers an astute intersectional analysis of global patriarchal power.


Citing a plethora of examples from the realm of culture, politics and religion, Eltahawy elucidates the pernicious effects of the patriarchy. She urges women worldwide to draw on traits deemed 'sinful' by society to dismantle this omnipresent system of oppression.


The writing is uniquely fierce and fearless, making it necessary reading for everyone.
