About This Book

We need less censorship of female behaviour. We need more women and we need raw women. We need more Killing Eve's and fewer Women Being Killed in the Opening Credits By Steves. We need to scream alongside them and get down and dirty with them. We need not for our personalities to be depicted by our haircuts or colour... 'Lady Sidekick' scrutinises fifty of the most snore female cookie-cut character archetypes, appropriations and tokens that we are SO over and gives them a 21st-century makeover. Through hilarious breakdowns, comic illustration and tongue-firmly-in-cheek-fuelled study, it slow-roasts each trope, sprinkling them with sarcasm, seasoning them with feminism, infusing them with activism and serving them up for the modern day masses. It's time to shove a stick of dynamite up the arse of the out-of-date and ignite the fresh! This book will light the touch paper.
