The word "feminism" has never been so ubiquitous, but it's in danger of being reduced to a new way to make women buy things. In this fantastic book (which is only partially about sex), Kristen Ghodsee makes a powerful case for the power of universal social programmes like childcare, healthcare, and parental leave to grant women economic, social, and political independence.

This new book by the founder of Jacobin magazine is a fantastic introduction to democratic socialism, the hottest new craze that's sweeping the nation! In his typically readable and engaging style, Bhaskar imagines a plausible socialist future, outlines the successes and failures of socialism in the Twentieth Century, and shows how the instability of liberal capitalism presents an opportunity for the resurgence of democratic socialist politics.
