The pocket guide to the patriarchy
Across the world, women are still denied opportunities and rights. The home remains the most dangerous place for women to be worldwide; with the majority of homicide victims who are women being killed by partners or relatives. In some countries, women who get abortions after they are raped face jail time. Less than 20 per cent of landholders in the world are women. Despite all these truths, many would prefer to blame women. For not demanding a seat at the table. For walking home alone at night. For not working hard enough to overcome the odds that are stacked against them. In her first fact-filled, inclusive and energising book, Maya Oppenheim supplies you with the unforgettable realities, real-world anecdotes and tales of resistance to help you combat denial and continued injustice as the far-right grows and women's rights come under attack.
