Angela Saini on the flawed assumptions behind inequality.
In her latest book, The Patriarchs: The Origins of Inequality, science journalist Angela Saini argues that it’s not biology alone that formed the basis for the patriarchy. The history of the patriarchal state is much more complex. For example, one of the most radical attempts to overhaul gender inequality came from an unlikely actor: the Soviet Union.
Saini joins host Ravi Agrawal to discuss how to reset gender norms in our workplaces, homes, and communities.
