To illustrate her points, she also uses numerous examples of people from around the world who have successfully spoken out to make a difference. Each of the people named in the book consider themselves to be very ordinary, but many of the names will be familiar to the reader such as Zelda Perkins, who was the personal assistant who first reported Harvey Weinstein and Phillips’s own colleague Tom Watson who successfully took on the Murdoch press empire. They are of course modern-day heroes, who have suffered as a result of their fight, but had the courage to speak out and make a difference. The most shocking accounts in the book are those of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia and Phillips’s own colleague Labour MP Jo Cox, both of whom were murdered for their cause.
However, Phillips provides hope throughout the book and encourages the reader to see where imbalances exist and urges them to do something about it. Throughout the book Phillips makes reference to the danger she continues to puts herself and her family in so that she can continue to fight for what she believes in. It is hard not to be left feeling inspired by her.
