Product Details


“Stansell explodes popular ideas about the women’s movement with a history that shows its complexity, and the massive internal and external obstacles women are still trying to overcome.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“A unique, elegant, learned sweep through more than two centuries of women’s efforts to overcome the most fundamental way that human beings have been wrongly divided into the leaders and the led. It’s full of surprises from the past and guiding lights for the future.”—Gloria Steinem

“Thrilling . . . a bold, brimming history . . . reminiscent of The Second Sex in its elegant gallop through centuries and cultures.”—The Texas Observer

“Magisterial . . . [This book] will be a benchmark.”—The Nation
