Nggak sampai 200 halaman yang sekiranya bisa dilahap untuk membuka wawasan kita terhadap ketimpangan gender. Through astonishing interviews with powerful insiders, Blood and Oil tells how MBS's cabal played the Saudi economy and capitalised on the omnipotence of feudal power while effectively stamping out dissent, before allegations of his extreme brutality and excess began to slip out. Domestic violence, harassment and rape are for example so common and trivialised that we're essentially conditioned to think they're part of "normal" life - no one bats an eyelid when about 90% of women report experiencing harassment in public, yet when we get a highly mediatised case like that of Sarah Everard the authorities present it as "an exception", "a bad apple", and so on, as if it came as a suprise that a man with overtly misogynistic views and behaviours who had been reported before would end up abusing his position of power to rape and murder a woman. Laura talks about intersectional feminism, about how it’s not the women who should change but how all the problems are rooted in our systems on different levels.
