Although Sam was unable to come into work today, she still fulfilled her duty for today’s Bookseller favourite. ‘With everything happening in the world at the moment, never is there a more apt time to read this phenomenal book. Using first hand accounts from women themselves, it’s a powerful collection of the struggles of women to be seen and heard in a world that favours and excuses men. It will make you sad, angry and motivated to help enforce a change!’ - Sam

As part of our latest topic on everyday sexism, we spoke to Sonya Krzywoszyja @gannetguts about her experiences as a woman living in Australia. She opens up about how she discovered her sense of self worth through identifying as a fat woman and how she's trying to be as loud as she possibly can, whenever she can, to fight against the misogyny and sexism she comes up against. Find out more about her story via the link in profile.
Sergio Lopez, head of integrated production at @mccann_ww EMEA takes over our Advent Calendar for day 10. Here's his pick: '2017 will most likely go down as the year in which brands can no longer avoid the conversation around gender equality. Some alcoholic brands are struggling to deal with their past and transition into a world in which the objectification of women is a ‘big no’. Skol has done a brilliant job addressing gender equality. It partners with six (female) artists to redesign its old posters into new ones, sending a clear and meaningful message where women can no longer be objectified to sell a brew.
I like the simplicity of the campaign and the boldness in the approach.' To see more of @skol's 'Reposter' initiative visit our Facebook page.
