Outstanding article! Profound yet simple, ambitious yet actionable - big fan of your work. Unreal amount of research as well to write a book, did this take a long time to put together?

Your story reminds me of Caroline Perez's also excellent "Invisible Women". Pulling data from all walks of life, Perez’s “feminism for dummies” is an essential guide for identifying inherent male-bias, understanding the unintended consequences of inequality and a call to action to fix the widening gender data gap. It taught me that it has never been a level-playing field for women and there’s still so much more to do before anything resembling equality can be reached.

I'd appreciate your feedback on my article as I think it's a perfect companion piece to your wonderful writing, do let me know what you think! Also, FYI - I was utterly unaware of the origins and repurcussions of "Future is Female" which is why I am now aghast that I used this as my article image.
