"Terrifying...Impressive...A challenging esay that justifies the feminist revival."
Bestselling author and feminist scholar Marilyn French has written a shocking and fascinating analysis of the history of women's political, cultural, physical, and economic repression that is as controversial as it is utterly convincing. In this stunning work of resarch, Ms. French creates a devastating portrait of today's male-dominated global society, with its underlying aim of destroying, subjugating, or mutilating women. Here is a devastating indictment of our values and an important step toward an urgent public discussion of human morality.

This book was very well written and thought out. French takes an in-depth look at the attitudes of men towards woman through-out time. You do not have to be a hard-core feminist to enjoy this book, simply one who enjoys seeing different points of view. A women of many talents, she pours her heart and soul into this well though volume of criticism at age old traditions and ideals. Excellently written and recommended to anyone of any age as educational reading.
