Why Women Have Better Sex Under Socialism: And Other Arguments for Economic Independence, by Kristen R. Ghodsee

Overall I liked this book and I felt like it was a good introduction to socialist feminism. However, I felt like it lacked depth. I wanted more from it but I think I just need to read some classic Marxist theories to get what I’m looking for and get a better understanding of democratic socialism.

The audiobook was great. I think the fact that there are 2 narrators (one for Leon and one for Tiffy) added to the storytelling. Lighthearted, sweet, and a unique love story.

Very data-heavy and kind of overwhelming for such a short book. There are some good ideas but ultimately I think change needs to come from policy makers.

Honestly only read a couple of chapters and skimmed through the rest. Just a lot of rambling, and it all just felt repetitive.

Not sure how I felt about this. I think I liked parts of the advice, but I also felt like she was just a tiny bit demeaning. Idk relationships are hard.
