No society is truly equal but inequality should not be caused by one’s race, gender or another personal factor. This is a specialist book, looking at whether creating economic equality could solve racial and gender inequality.

A bit dry and academic-ish, but good overall. A 2nd, closer reading is in order and I have many stats and portions that would help in some of my research and policy insights.
