The anthology consists of twenty-seven contributions (including a translation of Nancy Fraser's 2009 article: "Feminism, Capitalism and the Cunning of History") in various genres – academic papers, personal essays, poetry, and visual art. All texts explore questions related to the complex ties between gender and capitalism today, arranged in four themes: citizenship, the body, the family, and cultural representations.

Most writers address current Israeli society and culture; a few give a historical perspective or address universal questions regarding the intersections of gender and capitalism, especially the challenges and opportunities women face under the current economic regime and contemporary consumer culture.
