It's Not OK to Feel Blue (and other lies)
  • It's Not OK to Feel Blue (and other lies)

  • Last year, Scarlett Curtis and 52 inspirational women wrote an extraordinary anthology on what feminism means to them. The book went on to be a cultural phenomenon and turned the world Pink.

    This year, it's Blue.

    We are living in the middle of a mental health epidemic and we have a choice: we can either be like all generations who came before us and be floored by it - or we can start to make a difference.

    Here are the extraordinary people making that difference - Other People Don't Feel Blue (and other lies) is a collection of stories and essays from those who have suffered through the worst, and know what it's like to fight to feel better.

    This isn't just a book. It's a shout, a scream that cuts above the noise and lets everyone know they are not alone. Funny, sad, clever, relatable and important, this collection is part of the global movement that is working to dismantle the shame that surrounds mental illness. It will be a shining example power of words to make us all feel better.

    Feminists Don't Wear Pink was a Sunday Times Bestseller, and winner of the National Book Awards Winner 2018!
