Why we are sending this book to Theresa May
The Equality Effect by Danny Dorling delivers all the evidence that is now so overwhelming that it should be changing politics and society all over the world. That's why, starting in the UK, we want to get the book into the hands of as many policy-makers and influencers as possible.
We have sent The Equality Effect to Theresa May and the leaders of the other major political parties in the UK. Now we need your help.
For £9.99 – the retail price of the book – you can deliver all of the evidence to support greater economic equality into the hands of a politician who will be able to use it to inform their decisions. The first 100 copies purchased will be sent to the UK Cabinet and Shadow Cabinet, and senior politicians in all the main political parties.
You buy it for them; we send it; a policy-maker or influencer reads it.
How it works: You buy this product as you would with any online order from the ethical shop. When we receive payment we will send the book you have paid for to the next politician on our list. You pay the retail price only, we pay the packing and postage. The book will be sent with the following letter:
The effect that greater equality has is almost magical. In more equal countries, human beings are generally happier and healthier, there is less crime, more creativity and higher educational attainment. The time will come when the equality effect will be as readily accepted as women voting or former colonies gaining independence – and it will come very soon.
