Commentary on The Sex Factor
'Ever controversial, Victoria Bateman's new book will cause a stir. While fun and engaging, it also packs a serious punch and explodes the myth that economics is gender neutral. If you are passionate about economics and feminism, this is well worth a read.'
Ayesha Hazarika, former special adviser to Gordon Brown, Harriet Harman and Ed Miliband; political commentator, broadcaster and stand-up comedian
'It always was insane to think of markets and the public sphere as independent of life in the home and the private sphere. Yet male economists after Adam Smith -- not Smith himself -- spread the insanity. In her crystal-clear yet scholarly book Victoria Bateman provides a sane alternative. Read it, and you'll know how we all, men and women together, became free and rich and, we hope, a little bit saner.'
Deirdre McCloskey, University of Illinois at Chicago, author of Bourgeois Equality
'[Victoria Bateman is] a bold, intelligent and original thinker... the Lady Godiva de nos jours.'
'A spirited exposure of the way that economics neglects gender, enlivened by the author's own experiences and beliefs. The unpaid work of women brings forth the labour force but is not properly acknowledged. And the more women are free to earn, the more their societies flourish.'
Professor Avner Offer, University of Oxford
