"No Offence, But..."

How to have difficult conversations for meaningful change


'An empowering guide'
Laura Bates

'A great, thought-provoking read'
Stephanie Yeboah

A practical, inspiring roadmap for changing the conversation on social justice issues.

'Not all men'
'I don't see colour'
'To play devil's advocate...'
'Climate change is coming'

From the persistent to the insidious, too often, antagonistic responses threaten to distract and derail the most urgent conversations.

Tackling twenty of the most enduring conversation-stoppers, No Offence, But... equips readers with the knowledge, tools and context to respond with confidence. Alongside other trailblazing writers, educators and advocates, acclaimed campaigner Gina Martin helps us to unpick these phrases, understand why they are harmful and feel empowered enough to change the conversation.

Featuring chapters from Aja Barber, Ben Hurst, Cathy Reay, Charlie Craggs, Daze Aghaji, Ione Gamble, Koa Beck, Mariam Kemple Hardy and Azadeh Hosseini, Nova Reid and Salma El-Wardany.
