Format: Paperback
I bought this book after taking a Women's Studies course and quite frankly was very surprised that it was more so an ideology and political agenda that has come into the psychology and science departments in American Colleges. I was very upset by this and began to seek answers in Science. Just read a little into it so far and looks like it's gonna be a good read.

I am so thankful that at least some feminists view gender roles as having some sort of basis in science and evolutionary theory and not the sole product of a social construct of conscious and collective effort my MEN the evil purveyors of the "The Patriarchy". Contemporary feminism teaches divisiveness and portrays women as the victims of men. This book is trying to get more feminist involved in at least taking a look at evolutionary theory, evolutionary psychology and evolutionary biology and human sciences. Young women are taught that science is to be mistrusted because it comes from men. If this is the case I hope young women will read the works of Prof. Sarah Blaffer Hrdy and Prof. Hellen Fisher to start to bring them back to the humans sciences. It is imperative that they do so. This book is a basic introduction that I think will ease them back into trusting science and men and humanity and stop defining themselves in the context of victims. To help find our essential nature as humans and finally that men and women arrived here together!
