End of Equality by Beatrix Campbell [9780857421135]

Among liberal thinkers, there is an optimistic belief that men and women are on a cultural journey toward equality.

Do It Like a Woman … and Change the Worldby Caroline Criado-Perez

Everyday Sexismby Laura Bates

Fix the System, Not the Womenby Laura Bates
