Great book.

I'd also suggest the following since they cover the sexism we endure at work/business, in academia, meeting/dating/marriage (pressured to get married as wife and mother are still the most women can achieve per social expectation), parenting (judged how we are as parents or criticized when we don't have kids), medical bias (getting push back from medical providers when making decisions about our own care, or being gaslit and discredited when we voice a valid medical concern), sex, sexual assault, street harassment, victim shaming, unrealistic expectations about our appearance, being the assumed caregivers (the one expected to quit work) sandwiched between our kids and our aging parents, wag gap, parenting gap, invisible labor, the double-standards of how we are expected to behave in school, work, in response to harassment, the backward approach of placing the onus on women to change some men's abusive/unhealthy/entitled behavior, etc.
