Read this and you'll think differently about the world around you,
This review is from: The Equality Illusion: The Truth about Women and Men Today (Paperback)
As a young female who once worked in the chauvinistic financial district of London, I was inspired to read this book by an article about Kat Banyard and her impressive equality crusade in the UK.
This book will affect everything you see and do. Next time your boyfriend suggests a trip to the lap-dancing club, you'll think about the girls who pay to work there, often drinking themselves into a stupor in an effort to blot out the acts they're about to perform. When you look around the meeting room you will wonder why the male:female ratio is still so high. As you walk home at night, you will think about the shift-workers you see getting onto the bus, and why there are still so many women doing the poorest-paid jobs. I could go on.
The Equality Illusion spells out in powerful terms the sham that is our 'post feminist' society today, and what we can do to try and reverse some of the damage that continues to be done.
