Women's economic development expert Linda Scott coined the paradigm-shifting concept of the 'double X economy' to describe both the shocking gender inequalities that are built into our global economy, and the collective power of women that could be harnessed to combat those inequalities.
Drawing on a wealth of sources including radical original research and vivid case studies, Scott reveals how economic subordination and exclusion are systemic for women in the developing and the developed worlds; and shows that by pulling women in as equal participants in the economy, we could address many of humankind's most pressing problems.
Provocative, accessible and potentially game-changing, The Double X Economy is the feminist answer to Jeffrey Sach's The End of Poverty: both a work of expert analysis and an urgent call to action.
