With a positive message about friendship, female empowerment and standing up for who you are, this is the perfect gift for girls aged 12+. Inspiring, warm and honest, this conversational and big-sisterly guide is the must-have girl power book of 2019.

“Speak Up! is a wonderful and timely guide to activism for women and girls brought up in the age of the internet and social media. It is wholly accessible, fun and quirky, full of Laura Coryton’s own experiences with the very successful tampon tax campaign. I highly recommend it – and hope the book helps to galvanise the next generation.” – Helen Pankhurst, great granddaughter of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, author and women’s rights activist.
