Jasmine and Chelsea are best friends, and they’re sick of the way women’s voices are silenced even at their progressive high school. They start a Women’s Rights Club, Write Like a Girl, and post everything online—poems, essays, videos of Chelsea performing, Jasmine’s response to racial microaggressions she experiences—because art is never just art, and they know they can use it to make a difference.
Soon their work goes viral, and even with growing support, the club is targeted by trolls. When things escalate in real life, the school principal shuts down the club. But Jasmine and Chelsea will risk everything for their voices—and those of other young women—to be heard.

Watson and Hagan introduce two dynamic young women who stand up and speak out in a novel that features their powerful art and poetry.
