We're so excited to be teaming up with London beauty powerhouse WAH NAILS to celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 with an in-salon feminist library and free lunchtime event with author Alex Holder.

This week, head down to the WAH Nails salon in Soho and browse a library of ten of our incredible women writers while you wait for your appointment. Tag us & WAH in your insta stories/tweets to be in with a chance of winning books.

Wah for news

On Friday 8th March at 1pm, Alex Holder will hold a free event discussing her new book Open Up, and the power of talking about money. Open Up (published Thursday 7th March) calls for us to radically improve our finances by talking about money with friends, family and colleagues. WAH Nails is located at 4 Peter Street, Soho, London, W1F 0AD.

The WAH Feminist Library is made up a combination of recent and classic titles by women writers. The library includes cult autofiction I Love Dick by Chris Kraus, National Book Award finalist Her Body & Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado, Sunday Times Bestselling food manifesto Eat Up by Ruby Tandoh and the classic The Piano Teacher by Nobel winner Elfriede Jelinek.
