Description

A GUARDIAN SCIENCE BOOK OF THE YEAR

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2020 ROYAL SOCIETY INSIGHT INVESTMENT SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE
LONGLISTED FOR THE 2020 FINANCIAL TIMES AND McKINSEY BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR

An urgent analysis of global gender inequality and a passionately argued case for change by a pioneer in the movement for women’s economic empowerment.

‘Passionate and timely . . . in a world where so many of us stick to criticising the status quo, it’s heartening to read someone willing to offer viable solutions.’
CAROLINE CRIADO-PEREZ, OBSERVER (author of Invisible Women)

‘A compelling and actionable case for unleashing women’s economic power.’
MELINDA GATES

The Cost of Sexism is an urgent analysis of global gender inequality and a fervently argued case for change by a pioneer in the movement for women’s economic empowerment. Drawing on decades of statistical evidence, original research and global on-the-ground experience, Linda Scott outlines a revolutionary, actionable plan to remove economic barriers against women, and in the process combat humankind’s most pressing problems.

‘One of the most objective, data-led, rigorously scientific and morally persuasive books of the year.’
GUARDIAN (Books of the Year)
