10 years after founding the Everyday Sexism Project, feminist writer and activist Laura Bates connects the dots between the ‘isolated incidents’ of violence against women and the institutional and systemic misogyny that is so deeply ingrained in our society.

Every three days in the UK, women are murdered by their current or former partners. 137 women worldwide are killed by a family member every day. These are not isolated incidents. They are part of a devastatingly clear pattern. But it is a pattern we are so used to seeing that we simply don’t notice it anymore. These incidents are the product of a society in which misogyny is so deeply ingrained that it has simply become part of our daily lives.

This book will lay these patterns bare for everyone to see. Joining the dots from an epidemic of school sexual violence to the failings of the police and CPS, institutional and systemic misogyny, political apathy and media distortion, this will be an examination of how the entire system lets women and girls down, again and again.

In Isolated Incidents, Laura puts forward her own bold and ambitious solution for combating misogyny and violence against women – one that includes structural change and tackles institutionalised prejudice.
