I was inspired to buy this book by a friend who was a founder member of the Women's Equality Party. And there was much to learn and much to enjoy such as 'Progress is a spider's web, patiently spun from many directions, the intersection of multiple experiences and realities. It has great tensile strength, but it is also fragile.'

In June 2017 pretty much every political pundit was adamant: 'Theresa May will be gone by Christmas.' Writing this just after Christmas, May is still Prime Minister. Per
I feel like if I hadn't read a huge amount of other books about feminism, I would have found this book particularly interesting and almost, dare I say it, revolutionary. Briefly, there was something very novel about this book, as Catherine Mayer is one of the accidental co-founders of the non-partisan Women's Equality Party. If this had been an account of the formation and actions of WEP, I think I would have given it a higher rating than I did.

However, there seemed to be little coherence throu
I don't know what the author wanted to achieve in this book. This certainly wasn't the book I thought it would be. It was a hodgepodge of facts strung together in a semi-coherent way. Although saying that, it was easy to read and that I enjoyed. There are three things that stuck with me: liberals suck at putting women forward for office, in Egypt, more than 90% of women have had FGM and the nordic model should be up for discussion. The only solution I saw was universal base income. I didn't like ...more

While channel surfing one morning, I happened upon Catherine Mayer on a talk show and was immediately engrossed in the conversation about Attack of the 50 Ft. Women: How Gender Equality Can Save The World!

The book is hopeful and inspiring in showing us the vision for Equalia, a gender-equal world, and through her extensive global research, Catherine recounts the progress some societies have made toward this goal. But it's not enough!

My biggest lesson is that it is not enough to simply adjust the

I think this is a *fantastic* book if you're new to feminist literature and are looking for a comprehensive look at women in society and the problems they face which is written in an engaging and thoughtful manner. It's also clearly written with intersectionality in mind, so big thumbs up for that. I loved the fact it was clear Mayer had interviewed a lot of people, and I really liked reading about the setting up of the Women's Equality Party. I do think there's a problem - as with all books lik ...more

The cover of this one caught my eye at the library - it's written by Catherine Mayer, who founded (somewhat accidentally) the Women's Equality Party in the UK.

This book contains ideas about how we can reach a mythical land called "Equalia", where women and men are truly equal. With chapters on politics, women in power, gender, masculinity, ambition, the sex trade, women in film, women in business, religion, technology and Iceland (the most gender equal society) - this is a really interesting rea

I teach a university course on Women and Power in history and I enjoyed reading about how the author founded the Women's Equality party in the UK. The second chapter was the most interesting for me as it discussed modern female heads of state and heads of government, why there are still so few of them and how they are perceived by the public. Some of the issues discussed in the other chapters were familiar from reading the Economist and other books of this kind about women and society around the ...more

Catherine Mayer seems to have put a lot of my thoughts on gender equality into words, although sadly her vision of 'Equalia' seems like an impossible dream. This would've got a five star review except for the fact that it did seem like a jumble of facts at times. Now, I'm off to sign up to the Women's Equality Party.

It goes without saying that everyone should read this, even (especially) if you believe things aren't really that bad, that women are plenty equal already, or that equality isn't so much of a big deal in the grand scheme of things. Entertaining and enlightening.
Some interesting and timely discussions of contemporary women's issues (mainly in the west). However, I felt like the concept of the book - in which Mayer tries to envision what a gender equal world would look like - didn't really work. Her analysis of current issues was good, but it was a little hard to get to into the interesting subject matter. The book fails to find its feet in the first couple of chapters, in which Mayer jumps between sketching out the concept behind the book and what subje ...more
I bought this book very excited about what it promised to offer (a description of a world where equality bewteen men and women was the norm). However, I found it extremely difficult to read and have to force myself to go through the end.

This book is not really a description of this ideal world, but just a list of facts glued together with the story of the writer's developing a political party. I did not feel like I learned much, nor that this book provided me with tools on how to move towards t

I had to scan-read to finish this book, just to get it done. I was initially enthralled by the outlandish cover and the apparent promise of offering hope for a gender-balanced future - and ways to get there. But this book is just another turgid historical account of our female-centric troubles and tragedies, with very little in the way of hope or constructive suggestions for how we might negotiate equality in the 21st century. I want real strategies, dammit!

I really wanted to like this book. Sadly that was not the case. I couldn't finish it. It felt like I was reading facts and statistics with a few connecting sentences thrown throughout. I didn't feel there was any originality in the book. I wish there were personal stories about the author so the reader would feel some sort of connection.

I enjoyed reading this book. And although it doesn't provide all the solutions, it asks the right questions to get us started on the road to equality. Definitely worth a read.

Wonderfully fascinating, extensively broad and intelligent if not smoothly written. An important discussion piece worth everyone thinking about.

A really good book about parts of the General Election 2016 I didn't know about.
