Summary
"In our lifetime, the US has seen a major shift in dominant economic thought, yet few women can identify or talk about its influence. Screwnomics issues a wake-up call for today's women to join what has been a nearly exclusively male conversation for the past 2,500 years. It explains the sexual history of economics, and the unspoken but widely applied economic theory that females, including our mother earth, should always work for less, or better, for free. Written 'for those who only keep the whole show going, making sure everyone has clean socks,' [this book] offers readers hope for a better, more inclusive future -- and the tools to make that hope a reality"-- Page 4 of cover
