‘Incisive and funny ... a woman reaping the rewards and weathering the consequences of speaking her mind.’


Seattle-based writer, performer and activist Lindy West has been called ‘an essential (and hilarious) voice for women’ by Lena Dunham.

This outspoken writer doesn’t hold back when it comes to the issues of feminism, social justice and body image, her articles and tweets generating plenty of discussion and criticism in the online sphere. With her inimitable good humour, vulnerability and charm, West debunks the myth that feminists can’t be funny. She talks with Kirsti Melville.
