Why is gender inequality so stubbornly persistent?

Power. Even today, power remains concentrated in the hands of men right across the worlds of business, politics and culture. Decisions taken by those with power tend to perpetuate gender inequality rather than accelerate solutions. And those who see the problem often feel powerless: ingrained sexism and gender inequality can seem too huge to solve.

Equal Power holds a mirror up to society, showing the stark extent of gender inequality while making the case that everyone has the power to create change. Whether you are a teenage student, a global CEO or a taxi driver, there is much we can do as friends, consumers, parents and colleagues to create a world of Equal Power.

In this inspiring and essential book, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats and former Government Minister for Women Jo Swinson outlines the steps we can all take, small and large, to make our society truly gender equal.

I loved this book... Inspiring... There is something for everyone. -- Cath Sell * Nudge *
In the wake of #MeToo and #TimesUp this book is what we need to arm ourselves to make the final push for equality. Real and tangible equality is possible but we need to work together to achieve it and we all need to read this book. -- Nimco Ali
I love this book. Everyone should read it, particularly future generations and those who see themselves as architects of new solutions. We must all acknowledge our absorption of inequality to gain clarity, not just about gender bias, but the bigger picture of marginalization and under-representation as a whole. -- Professor Caryn Franklin MBE
