From Lizzie Marvelly's Twitter account

Lizzie Marvelly is an extraordinary musician, award-winning columnist, astute blogger, fearless activist and on 1 September 2018, she will be able to add ‘author’ to her already impressive CV.

In her debut book, That F Word, Marvelly will tell her own story and delve into the experience of being a woman in Aotearoa.

‘I hope that there’ll be something in there for everyone whether it’s a personal story that helps a young woman to feel that she's not alone, or a new take on an issue that inspires someone to see things differently,’ says Marvelly.

‘I hope That F Word will empower and embolden the next generation of Kiwi women. This book is for the bossy little girl in all of us.’

‘We are incredibly excited to be publishing Lizzie Marvelly’s story of growing up feminist in Aotearoa,’ says Alex Hedley, Publisher, HarperCollins New Zealand.  ‘It is a narrative that will be all too familiar, all too shocking and extremely poignant in this 125th anniversary year of women’s suffrage in New Zealand.’

HarperCollins Publishers New Zealand will publish That F Word by Lizzie Marvelly on 1 September 2018.
