The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Sex, Love, and Family

By Liza Mundy
A revolution is underway: within a generation, more households will be supported by women than by men.

In The Richer Sex, bestselling author and Washington Post writer Liza Mundy takes us to the exciting frontier of a new economic order, showing why more households will be supported by women than by men within a generation and how both men and women will feel surprisingly liberated in the end. She goes deep inside the lives of cutting-edge couples to paint a picture of how dating, sex, marriage, and home life are changing. She also investigates all the new, sometimes highly personal debates born in a society that can no longer assume the male is the primary breadwinner. This wild ride into the future, grounded in Mundy's peerless journalism, will cause women and men of all generations to rethink the meaning of this social upheaval.

"This thought-provoking exploration of the way women's expanding roles in the workplace is changing their lives at home is sure to create a stir. . . . Readable and poignant, Mundy's latest is the perfect starting-point for this timely conversation." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Liza Mundy has written a visionary, optimistic, inspiring book about the future of gender relations in America. She writes with verve, rigor and a keen sense for the unexpected. This is the rare book about the future that not only tells you where we're headed by why we should want to arrive." --Steve Coll, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and president of the New America Foundation
