“Agnes Török speaks out against gender-based violence with an urgency and fluency. Agnes’s voice is one that demands to be heard. She, and we, will not be shut up.”
Jo Shaw, Dangerous Women Project

ABOUT THE BOOK
This is a book for everyone. Everyone who agrees that sexual violence is a societal issue. That gender-based violence is rampant. That we need to do something about it.

This is especially for fellow victims and survivors. For our friends and families and loved ones. A kind, supportive, helpful, and revolutionary book. The kind many of us wish we had when we needed it.

WE NEED TO TALK
about violence and how to end it. About when we, as victims of rape and gender-based violence, become survivors and change-makers.

WE NEED TO TALK
about the fight still ahead of us. The fight to change laws, norms, narratives, and structures. To build consent, demand accountability, and ensure freedom from violence.
The fight we need you in.

WE NEED TO TALK
is a call to arms.
A voice in the silence.
The beginnings of a plan on How To Change Everything.
Let’s start right now.

This is a personal book. A political book. A book about human experiences.

Happiness Is An Art Form is a reflection on what makes our lives good and how we can best equip ourselves to get through difficulty – trauma, mental ill health, illness, you name it. Török speaks about them all, with joy, clarity, and humor.

This is a book about you. It is an invitation to think about your life – your good times and your bad, your joys and your challenges. To think about if there is anything you could do, big or small, that could add more joy to your life. Anything that could make the challenges a bit more manageable. Don’t worry, you’ll have a whole book to help you make up your mind.

It is time to order it and start.
