Newsflash: Capitalism is not good for women.

Capitalism cannot measure or value non-monetized, more human and relational sources of wealth. Were it to attempt to systematically do so by internalizing all costs – not just the costs of pollution, but also including those tasks performed predominantly by women – capitalism wouldn’t come close to being profitable and, hence, would be a nonviable system.
