Hey high-achieving ladies, want to feel even better about yourselves and your future? How about a book-length explanation of why professional success won’t tank your chances of landing a man—if you even want one? In her book The Richer Sex, Washington Post reporter Liza Mundy has rounded up the research, concluding that the tidal wave of women getting graduate degrees will eventually upend the patriarchy and fetch them higher salaries to match. At the same time, men are finding financial success more attractive in potential mates. Women increasingly don’t feel—as one of Mundy’s interviewees apparently did—the need to hide their BMWs or dumb down their place in the corporate hierarchy. And if you’re still housewifing it? Get ready to admit more dudes to your sewing circle. Liza Mundy discusses her book at 7 p.m. at One More Page Books, 2200 N. Westmoreland St., No. 101, Arlington. Free. onemorepagebooks.com.
