As part of a campaign around the #iamafeminist hashtag, we released over one hundred copies of What’s a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne on the London Underground, thanks to Usborne Publishing.

About What’s a Girl Gotta Do?
HOW TO START A FEMINIST REVOLUTION:
- Call out anything that is unfair on one gender
- Don’t call out the same thing twice (so you can sleep and breathe)
- Always try to keep it funny
- Don’t let anything slide. Even when you start to break…
Lottie’s determined to change the world with her #Vagilante vlog. Shame the trolls have other ideas…
Who found the book on the tube?

About Holly Bourne, in her words
When I’m not writing books, I work as a journalist and relationship advisor for TheSite.org – a charity-run website that helps 16-25-year-olds with practically every problem you can imagine growing up. I’m like half-journalist, half-agony aunt. I also work on TheSite’s Ask A Relationship Question service, focusing particularly on young peoples’ sex and relationship problems. Before this, I spent two years working as a news reporter for The Surrey Mirror where I was shortlisted for Print Journalist of the Year 2010. I’ve got a first class degree in Journalism from the University of Sheffield. Whilst there, I was editor of ‘Stiletto’, the student union women’s magazine. My debut novel, SOULMATES, was started at the Surrey Mirror and took two long years to write.
