The Richer Sex

Cover Image

A revolution is under way. In 1970, less than 5 percent of working wives in the U.S. out earned their husbands. Today, nearly 40 percent do. Within a generation, a majority of working women will make more than their husbands and more women will support families than men.

In The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love and Family, best-selling author Liza Mundy shows how this reality will transform the sexual, dating, marriage, and work habits of men and women worldwide.
