Victoria Bateman is a fellow and lecturer in economics at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge University. She has led calls for a sexual revolution in economics as well as conducting various high profile 'naked protests' to highlight the marginalization of women's bodies in public life.
'Ever controversial, Victoria Bateman's new book will cause a stir. While fun and engaging, it also packs a serious punch and explodes the myth that economics is gender neutral. If you are passionate about economics and feminism, this is well worth a read.'

Read it, and you'll know how we all, men and women together, became free and rich and, we hope, a little bit saner.' Deirdre McCloskey, University of Illinois at Chicago, author of Bourgeois Equality '[Victoria Bateman is] a bold, intelligent and original thinker... the Lady Godiva de nos jours.' The Amorist
