Praise

Fascinating. . . . Eller carefully clips every thread from which this matriarchal myth is woven. -Natalie Angier, The New York Times Book Revie”Passionately argued, engagingly written, this vital book is certain to inspire wide-and much-needed-debate.” -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[An] engaging critique of a popular but perhaps self-defeating belief.” -Mark Odegard, Utne Reader

“In unraveling the pretensions of matriarchalists, Eller seeks to show that wider matters are at stake. . . . Matriarchal myth, [she] argues, is actively harmful at worst and at best unnecessary.” -Lawrence Osborne, Salon.com
