I have reluctantly had to delete all contact details from my profile here because of continual harassment by one person who is pursuing me across the internet with the intention of driving me away from the internet completely. I am no longer accepting review copies of books.

Leitz Wow A4 Ruled Notebook - Metallic Pink by Leitz
4.0 out of 5 stars A4 Ruled Notebook, 20 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good quality notebook with 80 sheets of 80grm paper. The paper is ruled with un-ruled margins and a neat box for the heading on each page.

The book is described by its author as a polemic. It isn't only about women it is about bigotry and prejudice and about how those affect everyone in their daily lives. It is about rigid gender roles and how they affect the choices of everyone. Rigid roles affect those men who want to be nurses and carers just as much as they affect women who want to be engineers and airline pilots or computer programmers. Rigid gender definitions of qualities and aptitudes stop people taking on the roles they as individuals are best suited for.

The book talks about issues which many people hesitate to voice and it talks about people being individuals first and foremost before they are either… Read more
