Description

What if one day, all of the women suddenly disappeared, leaving the men to take their places, fill their roles, do what they did. What would happen? How would the men react?




Here and now, women's subordination is so systemic it's unremarkable (to all but serious feminists). In It Wasn't Enough, once women are gone and men have to take their places, fill their roles, the subordination becomes remarkable-that is, it becomes noticeable. And then- What would happen? Would men finally see that their world is based, unjustifiably so, on a hierarchy of sex and, as a result, change it? Or would they just create a new, arbitrary, subordinate class to maintain their positions of power?

"I absolutely enjoyed it. There were times when I was thinking 'There's no way this would happen, ' but then I'd check the references at the back and sure enough there it was." Sarah Rean

"... a powerful and introspective dystopia .... It is a book I truly recommend for a book club as the discussions could be endless .... " Mesca Elin, Psychochromatic Redemption, about It Wasn't Enough



"I read this book from cover to cover in one afternoon, pulled inexorably along by the readable style and careful pacing. I then spent a long time staring at a wall, recovering from the free-fall, hurtling journey, coming to the conclusion that this book must be read. Women will see their lives. Men will see their crimes. Whether they will learn from this mirror remains to be seen. Shefali Sequeira, 4w, about It Wasn't Enough
