Polly Vernon, Grazia columnist, Times feature writer, the artist formerly known as The Observer's Cocktail Girl provides us with a new perspective on feminism.
HOT FEMINIST is a trip through feminism, fashion, the righteous pursuit of a sexy vibe, and what it means to be a woman when you're on the receiving end of modern media's hilariously/ bizarrely/ insanely contradictory / restrictive / reductive / sometimes just straightforward revolting notions of womanhood.
HOT FEMINIST questions and disregards the many rules we impose on each other when it comes to being a 'good' feminist. And instead Polly argues for non judgement: Exploring her own life long, on-going pursuit of hotness she will teach you how to seek empowerment through the way you look. This isn't about what women can't do, this is a new-age guide to what you can do, what you can think, what you can wear and what you can wax.
Polly Vernon has been a features writer, interviewer and columnist for 18 years. She started as a junior writer on Minx, a lecherous, riotous young woman's magazine, which launched in the late '90s as a female response to Loaded. She was picked up as the Guardian's youngest ever Comments and Analysis columnist, as a result of her work on the magazine. Since then, she's written for everything from Vogue to The Telegraph, Grazia to The Spectator.
