Three Women

By Lisa Taddeo
Narrated by: Tara Lynne Barr, Marin Ireland, Mena Suvari & Lisa Taddeo
Length: 11 hours 24 minutes

Three Women

“I can’t recall the last time I’ve been reading a work of nonfiction and woken up excited purely by the fact that, today, I would get to read more. Compulsive and psychologically riveting, Three Women reads like a novel. I couldn’t keep from dog-earing its pages each time Taddeo perfectly expressed something I’d felt but never had the words for. In Sloane, Maggie, and Lina, I recognized aspects of myself — namely the desire for connection and for love. When three women tell their uncensored truth, they can liberate a nation. I feel deeply grateful to Lisa Taddeo for giving us this gift of raw authenticity.”

Invisible Women

Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

By Caroline Criado Perez
Narrated by: Caroline Criado Perez
Length: 9 hours 25 minutes

Invisible Women

“This book is as utterly fascinating as it is frustrating and eye-opening. I blew through it in a day and a half because I simply could not stop listening to it and appreciating with rising vexation Perez's breakdown of the data at every level of the world we live in today. This is a book I wish I could share with everyone and talk about to get the ball rolling on change.”
