What do you do when youre living on the streets and on your period? What does it feel like to have a poo after youve given birth? How do we learn to love our bodies again after theyve been abused? And, how do you know if youve ever really orgasmed? We all have questions about our bodies but often womens voices are silenced for being impolite or improper What Were Told Not To Talk About (But Were Going To Anyway) 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. Alongside Nimkos story of living with FGM, rebuilding her relationship with her own body and being a woman her own way, these are the true stories of real women who are sharing the experiences theyve always been told should be secret and shameful. The book is a call to arms for all women to reclaim the narrative around their bodies and to refuse to bow to the taboos which keep us silent. There is no such thing as oversharing. Hilarious and heart-breaking at the same time, Nimko has blown apart all taboos, blown apart the echo chamber and included all women in the feminist conversation.
