Woke has conquered the West. Identity politics, cancel culture and trans ideology reign. And this has turned progressive politics upside down. Virtue-signalling corporates now pose as radical, while working-class people are demonised as bigots. Racial divisions are rehabilitated in the name of anti-racism. Women’s rights are destroyed in the name of trans rights.

How did this happen? And is there still time to fight back? These are the questions at the core of How Woke Won, the brilliant new book by Joanna Williams, soon to be published by spiked in partnership with John Wilkes Publishing. To celebrate the book’s release, Joanna will join Brendan O’Neill for a live Zoom edition of his podcast, The Brendan O’Neill Show, on Monday 16 May at 7pm.

Brendan and Joanna will discuss where woke came from, whose interests it really serves, and what ordinary people can do to take on this seemingly all-powerful movement. Don’t miss it. There will be time for questions from the audience, too.
