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this book was written in the late 1980s and so is likely to have a level of bias and in some aspects be scientifically out of date.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.
