Taxes Are a Women’s Issue: Reframing the Debate

I’m reading one of my favorite books on taxes, Taxes Are a Women’s Issue: Reframing the Debate. The book urges readers, especially women, people of color, and the working poor, to better understand taxes and fight for a system that supports all Americans.

If you get a chance, pick it up. It’s a really interesting read.
