Summary

Shortlisted for the 2020 Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize.

Longlisted for the 2020 Financial Times and Mc Kinsey Business Book of the Year Award.

An urgent analysis of global gender inequality and a passionately argued case for change by a pioneer in the movement for women's economic empowerment. 

The Cost of Sexism is an urgent analysis of global gender inequality and a fervently argued case for change by a pioneer in the movement for women's economic empowerment. Drawing on decades of statistical evidence, original research and global on-the-ground experience, Linda Scott outlines a revolutionary, actionable plan to remove economic barriers against women, and in the process combat humankind's most pressing problems.

The Cost of Sexism was previously published in 2020 in hardback under the title The Double X Economy.
