Women have achieved lasting social change since the Sixties, but not because of Feminist politics. The vast majority of women have been empowered instead by popular culture, which gave them vital economic power and political significance as consumers.

A World According to Women Summary


A World According to Women: An End to Thinking by Jane McLoughlin

McLoughlin proposes that the combination of marginalization of men under Margaret Thatcher, and Tony Blair's actions of making government part of popular culture, made women the dominant political force in our society. Yet by the very nature of the popular culture that empowered them - trivial, emotional and irrational - women have brought about change in crucial aspects of our society which now threaten the democratic system itself.

A World According to Women Reviews


'This book will change the way you think...the most extraordinarily interesting and stimulating book, written with the passion of conviction.' -Fay Weldon ' A lot of the time McLoughlin is convincing...she writes intelligently...and her description of society is scary.' - Molly Guinness, The Spectator

About Jane McLoughlin


As the former editor of Guardian Women, Jane McLoughlin was part of the generation of women that originally sought to build social justice through liberation politics. Since then she has seen how women themselves, through in-fighting, irrationality and refusal to abandon their victim status, have destroyed all hope of building that dream of liberation. She has worked on the Hexham Courant, Newcastle Journal, and the Daily Mirror. She was deputy women's editor of the Daily Telegraph, a feature writer for the Daily Mail, and the editor of Guardian Women, where she was also a columnist and the industrial editor. She worked for the Observer and was a leader writer for The Independent. She was a producer for Granada TV and has published 5 non-fiction books, including two published by Virago, and 7 novels. She knows whereof she speaks.
