DOUBLE BIND: WOMEN ON AMBITION

Even as toweringly successful women from Gloria Steinem to Beyoncé embrace the word "feminism," the word "ambition," for many, remains loaded with ambivalence. Women who are naturally driven and goal-oriented shy away from it. They're loath to see themselves--or be seen by others--as aggressive or, worst of all, as a bitch.

THREE DIMENSIONS OF FREEDOM

Written by Bragg, Billy
We live in a world where strongman politics are rising; neo-liberalism has hollowed out political parties; and corporations have undermined democracy. Ordinary voters feel helpless to effect change, resulting in outbreaks of populist anger, and traditional platforms for debate are losing their viability as readers source information online. In this short and vital polemic, progressive thinker and activist Billy Bragg argues that accountability is the antidote to authoritarianism, and that without it, we can never truly be free. He shows us that Freedom requires three dimensions to function: Liberty, Equality, and Accountability – and the result is a three dimensional space in which freedom can be exercised by all.Musician and activist Billy Bragg diagnoses the crisis of accountability in Western democracies in this new series of political pamphlets from Faber.
