Bestselling journalist Liza Mundy’s smart, deeply reported analysis of the most important cultural shift since the rise of feminism

A revolution is underway. Within a generation, more households will be supported by women than by men. In The Richer Sex, Liza Mundy shows how this reality will transform the sexual, dating, marriage, and work habits of men and women worldwide.

This flip in the economic order is inevitable, and Mundy demonstrates why it will also be a good thing for individuals and families. Both sexes will be free for the first time to make purely romantic choices—ones that have nothing to do with marriage as an economic partnership.

The Richer Sex demonstrates that a growing number of men will be attracted to women because of their success. Women will behave more like men sexually, and men will yearn more for intimate connections with their partners. Couples will choose who in the partnership must assume the responsibility of primary earner and who gets to have the freedom of being the slow-track partner. Kids of stay-at-home dads and female breadwinners will love the role reversal, and the global marriage market will become one enormous and wild merry-go-round as men and women try to match expectations.

The first in-depth examination of this cataclysmic social revolution, The Richer Sex is one of those rare nonfiction books that will cause men and women to rethink how they are living their lives and what the changes around them mean.
