Last night, Liza Mundy, author of The Richer Sex, was the guest on The Colbert Report. Mundy’s book is really important, and if you haven’t already read it, I suggest you go borrow it from your local library this weekend. It’s a look at how the economy changes at both a macro and a micro level when women become breadwinners. How do our ideas about gender change when “man” and “provider” are no longer synonymous? How do our experiences of sex change when our definitions of masculinity and femininity shift? These are crucial questions, for feminism and for society at large.
