How Woke Won; the elitist movement that threatens democracy, tolerance and reason.

Wokeness has conquered our institutions. The worlds of politics, academia and even corporate capitalism now bend the knee to the new orthodoxies around gender, racism and identity. Drawing on her recent publication, How Woke Won, Joanna Williams explores the intellectual roots of wokeness and how this movement, which poses as radical and left-wing, came to be embraced by some of the most privileged people imaginable. Joanna argues that anyone interested in building a truly free, egalitarian and democratic society needs to tackle wokeness head-on.
