Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. In the final installment of her four-volume feminist history, French gratifies readers with an all-encompassing view of women's major and minor 20th century victories from all corners of the globe. French honors both male and female leaders, locating feminist uprisings in such unexpected places as Turkey, where reformist president Mustapha Kemal accepted women in his army and appeared in public with his educated wife unveiled. With patience, research and an extraordinary sense of scale, french examines the effects that the current major forms of government have had on women throughout the centuries, and correlates those findings with the current social and political moment in locations throughout the world. She also tackles the subjects of religion and war, which she claims are the two modern forms of patriarchy--men's way of successfully dominating not just women but other men. Her most curious and insightful volume, this book leaves no angle unexplored. Though often wordy, French offers a striking overview of feminist theory and action alongside her own views, polishing off an exquisite history useful for both personal and classroom study.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Have purchased and read all 4 books, covering pre-history to the present. I cannot find words to describe how impressed I am with the scholarship. Not an easy read but something everyone. particularly women, should study. Thank you, Marilyn French.
