Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Terrifying...Impressive...A challenging esay that justifies the feminist revival."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
Bestselling author and feminist scholar Marilyn French has written a shocking and fascinating analysis of the history of women's political, cultural, physical, and economic repression that is as controversial as it is utterly convincing. In this stunning work of resarch, Ms. French creates a devastating portrait of today's male-dominated global society, with its underlying aim of destroying, subjugating, or mutilating women. Here is a devastating indictment of our values and an important step toward an urgent public discussion of human morality.

Format: Paperback
When we live in a world where women can be bought, men can rape and kill their wives under the protection of the law, and women are being sexually mutilated against their will a book like this becomes very important. Many may like to believe Marilyn French is a man-hater. I, however, do not. I think some of her ideas and points may seem radical because we are all products of a patriarchical society...we can not help but not see just how wrong things are and how sexist our habits and thinking are when the world we have grown up in is a sexist(among many others things) one.

While many will find it easiest to dismiss this book in the manner that the simple-minded dismiss well argued and reasonable controversial works, such dismissal will be much more difficult for intelligent and well educated individuals. Her arguments are powerful and well supported, her observations astute, her conclusions sound and reasonable. This is one of the most important feminist books ever written and an absolute must read for anyone - anyone at all - who is concerned about the global situation of women.

I learned a great deal from this book, all of it eye-opening. It led me to read _The_Mismeasure_of_Woman_ and to subscribe to Ms. I'm pretty sure the hard-line political "Right" does not want anyone reading this book. It had me fighting mad--but I think that even if one doesn't want to get righteously angry, get informed

All women should read this book. Personally I would love to see this used in schools. How about a debate on TV like these like the show done on ethics. Very enlightening. I am surprised it got published.

This book is incredible in that once you have read it you will never see political events in the same light as before. The revelation that men actually envy women's ability to have children and be mothers explains so many of the male rituals that exist in our society. As a Christian I think she misunderstood some of the reasons for abstinence before marriage, however, overall her book is very revealing. I look forward to her next book.

I know woman's rights is so out of "vogue". As it seems the things some had fought so hard for, are slowly being undermined glad to see a new generation of people who care what happen to all women for all our mother daughters grand-daughters and sisters thanks for writing and thanks for reading and caring.
