  • Jacky Fleming…is brilliantly, mordantly funny and extremely clever, and these are her finest drawings yet… The book is savagely funny and wonderfully constructed, so that you start off giggling uncontrollably but then grow quieter at each successive misogynistic shocker… There isn’t a man, woman or child who wouldn’t benefit from spending time with this.

    India Knight, The Sunday Times
  • Fleming ably skewers the Great Men of History, not to diminish their own works but to highlight those women who were trodden underfoot… A perfect gift for all genders, ages and political persuasions but is sadly confined to the humour section rather than the place it really belongs – the school curriculum.

    Laura Sneddon, Independent on Sunday
  • This book is an utter delight – it does something I always admire, making very serious points but doing so through the medium of humour and satire. And oh my god, it does it so very well, text and cartoons working perfectly together here – I had to pause my reading frequently because I was laughing too much to continue to the next page.

    Joe Gordon, Fordbidden Planet
  • A collection of withering, laugh-out-loud commentaries and illustrations regarding women’s lot… The perfect gift for a burgeoning feminist daughter.

    Jane Graham, The Big Issue
  • Fleming has taken historic theories about women’s limited abilities and created a wry look at how sexism has affected what history has recorded.

  • Jacky Fleming is at her funniest yet… Beautiful, funny and important piece of feminist art.

    Jane Czyzselska, Diva
  • Crackling with her sparky humour and wry sense of the ridiculous.

    The Pool
  • I laughed so hard, I sank to the floor

    Emma Thompson, The Week
  • There’s plenty more to pique your interest here, such as Jacky Fleming’s ferociously funny The Trouble With Women.
