The critically-acclaimed and award-winning zoologist, broadcaster and author, Lucy Cooke, takes the reader on an incredibly timely and important global journey to meet the animals and scientists that are helping to redefine what is female. What does it mean to be female?

Mother, carer, the weaker sex? Think again.

Whether it's the female lemurs of Madagascar, dominating the males of their species both physically and politically, the female albatross couples, hooking up together to raise their chicks in Hawaii, or the murderous meerkat mothers of the Kalahari Desert, the bitches in BITCH overturn outdated binary expectations of bodies, brains, biology and behaviour.

In her trailblazing new book, Lucy Cooke offers a timely look at how sexist bias polluted evolutionary biology and through her riotous cast of bad-ass female animals shows the scientific patriarchy what's what.
