About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
To summarize: a fascinating, easy to read, well informed, well documented, and thorough exploration of issues facing both women in Israel and the implications of such behavior worldwide.
The book was generally well-written. In addition to detailed source references for each chapter and an index, there is a section at the end of the book listing agencies for changing the present situation. The author says, Don't just sit around and moan - get involved and make things better for all of us!
I did not give this book five stars because I felt that the sources the author used were kind of one-sided (left of center "liberal" politics). Again, I live in the world described; I don't think the general picture presented was slanted, but I would have appreciated hearing from other news media than the left-leaning press.
