Product description


"Wonderful … Kristen Ghodsee doesn’t wear rose-tinted spectacles … but she seeks with great brio and nuance to lay out what some socialist states achieved for women … That Ghodsee also makes this a joyous read is the cherry on the cake" (Suzanne Moore Observer)

"Ghodsee’s book could not have been published at a better moment ... There are many reasons to revisit socialist policies in a time of widening inequality, but a feminist perspective offers some of the most powerful incentives" (Emily Witt Guardian)

"Brilliant ... engaging ... Ghodsee is not naive [and] brings the necessary scepticism to her thesis [which] comes into sharp focus when she looks at what happened after the Wall fell ... [a] valuable record of how things were and how they could be" (Rosie Boycott Financial Times)

"Convincing, provocative and useful" (Times Higher Education)

"Capitalism’s triumph is a calamity for most women. Kristen Ghodsee’s incisive book brilliantly reveals their plight" (Yanis Varoufakis)

Book Description

This brilliantly witty and expert book explains why capitalism is rigged against women and what to do about it
