'There's nobody else at Westminster quite like Jess Phillips.
She is fearless and funny, riotous and rebellious, maverick and mischievous.'
The Times

'Jess Phillips is a heroine' J.K. Rowling

'Truth to Power treats politics as what we need to remember it is: the solving of problems in people's lives, which one attempts by coming up with a plan and working with everyone. The purpose of the book is to show readers how they can change things too. I've been at events where she's been the surprise guest, and the audience jumped to their feet and whooped like Chrissie Hynde had come on stage to play Brass in Pocket, because someone like Jess Phillips in politics does a powerful thing. It makes millions of women like her think, "If she can do politics, maybe I could do politics too."' Caitlin Moran

YOU HAVE MORE POWER THAN YOU THINK.

At a time when many of us feel the world isn't listening, Jess Phillips offers inspiration to those of us who want to speak out and make a difference.

No stranger to speaking truth to power herself, she will help you dig deep and get organised, finding the courage and the tools you need to take action.

As well as bringing us hope through her own experiences Jess talks to the accidental heroes who have been brave enough to risk everything, become whistle-blowers and successfully fight back.

These inspiring people, often living everyday lives, who then found themselves at the centre of the storm and spoke truth to power include:
Zelda Perkins, the personal assistant who first called-out Harvey Weinstein;
Paul Caruana Galizia, son of murdered Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia;
Tom Watson the British MP who successfully took on the Murdoch press empire and won;
Sara Rowbotham, the sexual-health worker who uncovered the abuse of young girls by gangs of Asian men in Rochdale - and the subsequent cover-up by the authorities;
Natasha Elcock, resident of Grenfell Tower and chair of Grenfell United, the pressure group set up by families after the disaster;
Cara Sanquest from the campaign to legalise women's right to choose abortion in Ireland.

Entertaining, empowering and uncompromising, TRUTH TO POWER is the book we all need to help us call time on the seemingly unstoppable tide of bullshit in our lives.

Here's what you say about us...

JESS PHILLIPS was first elected as the Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley in 2015, before being re-elected in 2017. She was elected chair of the Women's Parliamentary Labour Party in September 2016. Before becoming an MP, Jess worked with victims of domestic violence, sexual violence and human trafficking, and she continues to speak up on behalf of those who struggle to have their voice heard.

Jess has worked with the Home Office, the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Communities and Local Government on issues of Violence Against Women and Girls. She is one of the women who launched the #NotTheCost campaign to combat the violence faced by politically active women, and the Reclaim the Internet campaign, which challenges online abuse.

Recent writing by Jess includes her new Introduction to the Vintage Feminism Short Editions version of My Own Story by Emmeline Pankhurst; as essay in Life Lessons From Remarkable Women (Penguin); A section in the play Women In Power; and her first book, Everywoman (Hutchinson).

Jess lives with her husband and two sons in Birmingham, where she was born and raised.

There's nobody else at Westminster quite like Jess Phillips.
She is fearless and funny, riotous and rebellious, maverick and mischievous.
