Sincere, intent, focused, and always readable. [This] book gets to a truth, and an understanding. * Newsroom * Michelle Duff sweeps up all the misogyny that's accompanied Ardern's career so far and show how it undermines women in politics. It's engaging, enraging, illuminating and funny. -- Naomi Arnold (NZ journalist)
