The Vagina Monologues for the 21st century

'Hilarious and heart-breaking at the same time, Nimko has blown apart all taboos ... Essential reading for everyone' Scarlett Curtis, author of Feminists Don't Wear Pink

This book is about vaginas. Fanny, cunt, flower, foo-foo, tuppence, whatever you call it, almost half of the world's population has one.

But, what do you do when you're living on the streets and on your period? What does it feel like to have a poo after you've given birth? How does your vagina repair after a fourth-degree tear? And, how do you know if you've ever really orgasmed? We all have questions, but it's not seen as very polite to talk about our fanny; in fact it's downright rude.

Alongside Nimko's personal story of living with FGM, Rude shares the intimate and powerful stories of women and their own relationship with their vagina - from first periods to pregnancies, orgasms to the menopause.

Rude is an important, taboo-breaking book that gives voice to the experiences of women from all walks of life, whose stories might not ordinarily be heard. From Ethiopia to East London, these are the true stories of real women who all share one thing in common: a vagina.

Nimko Ali is a feminist, anti-FGM campaigner and professional over-sharer. She has spoken at events, including Women of the World, The Girl Summit, and the UN Commission on the Status of Women. She has also won numerous awards, including being named one of the Cosmopolitan's Woman of the Year 2010, BBC's 100 Women of 2013, Red magazine Woman of the Year 2014 and 6th on the Woman's Hour Power List 2014. Most recently she was named by The Sunday Times as one of Debrett's 500 most influential people in Britain.

She continues to campaign against the practice of FGM and for women's issues and currently works for the Women's Equality Party and as an independent adviser on a number of government and non-government bodies.
