This read more as an academic text than public-facing, which was interesting. There's lots of valuable information on the ways that financial systems have influenced the rise and fall of the patriarchy throughout history, but much of the book is not as engaging for a non-economist or historian reader. I enjoyed it, but I'm also not sure I was the intended audience.

Very comprehensive, though not very engaging. A dry lecture in written form. This would have worked better as a chapter or two in another work on a larger theme.

In Women, Money, Power we learn of the historic discrimination women have faced when it comes to equal pay and financial freedom. Through a historic lens looking at women from the past, Cox brings us to today to show us women’s fight to continue to break these financial barriers for women. The main takeaway for me is that we should not just simply accept and feel privileged for the positions we hold but we should demand more for ourselves and from society. Our work is not done yet. I loved this book and think it was wonderfully told. This is a very timely book for the societal conversations we need to be having today.
