A ground-breaking and explosive book on how women have been shortchanged by governments - one of the hottest and most contentious issues the nation faces in the first decade of the 21st century.
the condition of Australian women.
Debate still rages over their position in the workplace, their alleged failure to 'breed' sufficiently, their lack of true economic equality, and their inability to penetrate in any real numbers the proverbial glass ceilings in corporate and public life. What happened to the so-called feminist revolution? Why do most women feel exhausted and trapped? Is there real choice in women's lives today? Bestselling author of Damned Whores and God's Police , Anne Summers blows this issue wide open in The End of Equality, a work of formidable political and economic analysis, as well as a passionate and personal one. Threading through its pages are the voices and experiences of many Australian women of different ages and backgrounds. Their words, and Summer's startling conclusions, will shock, inspire and lead to a new revolution.
