Subtlety is often lost on the people who pull the strings...and as it turns out, the people who review their products.
In the months before I graduated from high school, we were barraged with catalogs and pamphlets and flyers in our homeroom. The boys got enticements from colleges and universities, and recruiting literature from various branches of the military. The girls got unsolicited literature from the local furniture stores showing the many styles of hope chests available, and from jewelers selling engagement rings, china and silver. I kid you not.
When the subject comes up, and I try to tell women younger than 30 about all the obstacles the women of my generation had to hurdle - obstacles both real and perceived, both external and internal, both surmountable and not - I usually get a "so-what" sort of a reaction. They just don't have any idea what we were made to believe our limits were, what our goals should be, and what were the lines we shouldn't try to cross.
The only reason you've come a long way, baby, is because the generation of women, who are now probably looking a bit like the over-the-hill-gang to you, battled it out over attitudes like the ones immortalized in this book. I'll never give up my copy - it will forever remind me of just how far we've come!
But seriously, do none of these people realize the time period was written in? Of course it's going to be sexist.

This book is an inspiring piece of literature. This novella emphasizes the necessity and complementary tendencies between men and women. Read morePublished on September 3, 2010 by hudsonz
Pretty much on par with Greek myths, fairy tales, operas, old movies and other misogynistic, chauvinistic, and outright fascist pieces of Goebbels propaganda. Burn, burn, burn! Read morePublished on April 30, 2009 by Mishka
What a horrible horrible story - the author must be completely pig headed. Way to completely stereotype girls and boys, i couldn't believe my eyes when i read it i was soo mad. Read morePublished on September 22, 2005 by Chloe Roberts
I am proud to be a woman, but also know that in general guys are better than me at sports, inventing things, and making more money. I loved the book and highly recommend it.Published on December 7, 2003 by Summer
