Abstract

In The Persistence of Gender Inequality, Mary Evans focuses on the continued structural inequalities between genders that go against optimistic narratives speaking only of inevitable progress and emancipation. This is a powerful and timely commentary on the persistence of inequalities throughout society that shows how tough the fight for equality has been – and may continue to be – as we collectively work to redefine the contours of our gendered political and social landscapes, writes Caroline Henaghan. This review is published to mark International Women’s Day: a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women.
