Synopsis

Discover why you aren't earning as much, saving as much or being valued as much as much as men in this astonishing dissection of the gender wealth gap



'A nuanced look at the institutional oppression faced by women on a daily basis' Dazed



The modern world is rigged unfairly in men's favour, from pensions to the tampon tax, bearing children to boardroom bullying. Exploring these injustices, Annabelle Williams, former financial journalist for The Times, shows how society conspires to limit women's wealth.
