Investigative journalist Amy Westervelt narrates her riveting audiobook with the certitude of a seasoned lawyer and the calm indignation of an activist who knows what she's up against. Her steadiness and authenticity as a narrator make it easy to comprehend her message that our culture, private organizations, and government policy have been skewed for a long time against the dignity and interests of mothers. The history she cites of misogyny and violence against women, especially working mothers, is documented with unsparing clarity, including outright barriers to financial independence and even the government-funded sterilization of women as recently as 2014. Though her examples of institutional disregard of women's human rights are numerous and overwhelming, Westervelt's balanced delivery and the evidence of change she points out make this an optimistic and empowering listening experience.
