General Non-Fiction

N. Herz, S. N. Srour and A. Bile


Nancy Herz, Sofia Nesrine Srour and Amina Bile have over the past year collected stories from girls who have personally experienced negative social control. In Shameless they discuss what it feels like to be constantly limited, corrected and shamed, and they share their own experiences on their way towards shamelessness. And their best hijab hacks.
Herz, Srour and Bile started the movement which in the media is referred to as ‘The shameless girls’, and which really put negative social control on the agenda. For their work for freedom of speech they have, among other things, received the award Fritt Ords Honnør (2017).

“Everyone should read this book, either to be inspired to fight for their own cause or to understand others.”


“(…) an amazing and powerful work, a future candidate for the Norwegian feminist canon.”

Vårt Land

“I am so enthusiastic about Shameless that I can’t get my hands down. They want to be up there in the air applauding.”
