This book is a powerful reminder of how far women have come and how much power as a group we are capable of weilding. Wolf's book has basic but extraordinarily effective concepts to use the power we have. Unfortunatley, this important book is rarely discussed in many forums, and often overlooked though it should've been the spark to start serious economic activism. A powerful and inspiring book. Everyone should read it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
