3.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed
This was recommended to me by a fellow Christian but I am not impressed. It is one of those books whereby they are trying to make you think Christianity is all man- (or more to the point woman-) made. On a positive note, it makes you think more about your Christian faith and what you truly believe.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read, 10 Feb 2012
This review is from: The Women's History of the World (Paladin Books) (Paperback)
This is a most enlightend read and should be the first place to start if you are looking at womens history, womens place in history, where feminist thinking came from and where it is going. It's easy to read, funny and irreverent and certainly dosen't push the case but rather just points out the facts. It answers so many question from Eve, to the 'immaculate conception', to the rise of feminism. Every women should read it, and every man for that matter. We might just end up with a more enlighted world! Go for it, you'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars an eye-opening, easy to read account of women's history, 3 Feb 2000

This review is from: The Women's History of the World (Paladin Books) (Paperback)
This book tells just how false our perception of the role of women is in past centuries. How important they were many centuries ago and how men's physical impact led them to be perceived as 'lesser' mortals. It's just a wonderful, fascinating book

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 25 Mar 2013

This review is from: The Women's History of the World (Paladin Books) (Paperback)
Everyone in the UK should read this book. It's excellent, very informative and has a sound historical basis. It's also very engaging. An excellent read and an important book.

In response to Cicero:

Cicero is forgetting that this book was written in the late 1980s and so is likely to have a level of bias and in some aspects be scientifically out of date. That is hardly a surprise. And while the first chapter does feel a bit anti-male, I would ask readers to remember how little equality there was at the time it was written and hence how it is bound to feel different in today's society. With that in mind, you can then concentrate on the many historical facts in the book which are extraordinary and do change women's views of themselves. It is far easier to read than the more academic writing style of Germaine Greer and reminds women that they have had a major place in history which has been entirely forgotten in the UK education system. It is an important book for women and men to read and reminds everyone that there should be equality in history teaching as well as more generally in today's society.
