How do you feel empowered when depression leaves you powerless? How do you promote self-esteem when your internal critic always shouts the loudest? How do you change the world when you can't get out of bed? In the second collection by the performance poet heralded by Laura Bates of Everyday Sexism as 'one of the powerful voices of young feminism today', Megan Beech chronicles her experiences as a young feminist dealing with mental illness. This follow up to Beech's feisty feminist debut When I Grow Up I Want to be Mary Beard probes the power and vulnerability that comes from being a depressed, aspirant, intelligent and flawed young woman in 21st Century Tory Britain.

Megan Beech is a performance poet. She was the winner of the Poetry Society's SLAMbassadors national youth slam in 2011. She has performed at venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Parliament, the Southbank Centre, Glastonbury Festival and Cheltenham Literature Festival. Her debut collection 'When I Grow Up I Want to be Mary Beard' was published in 2013, chronicling her experience as a young feminist and the fight for female voices to be presented in mainstream media. She was featured in The Guardian lists of 'inspiring young feminists in 2014' and 'Must Read Books of the Year 2014' and the Evening Standard's list of 'Ten 21st Century feminist icons'. She made a film with the BBC for the iPlayer series 'Women Who Spit' which was the most viewed arts content from the BBC in 2015. Her work has been profiled in publications including The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Evening Standard and Grazia magazine.
