Girls on Fire

Holly Bourne is talking about her brand new YA book, The Places I’ve Cried in Public, with Laura Bates, founder of Everyday Sexism and author of The Burning, and Jenny Downham, author of Furious Things, chaired by Sarah Shaffi. Girls on Fire is about the pressures of growing up and what it means to be a young woman today. Discussing subjects like trial by social media, misogyny, toxic relationships and slut shaming, they challenge sexism and empower young people to fight for equality.
