The African history section of the Indigo bookstores of the Greater Toronto Area are small and usually very similar. This book was only $10, struck me as an odd shelf choice for them, and I want to know why I should be super interested to read a book about women's lib by a dude. So I bought it.

“Comrades, there is no true social revolution without the liberation of women. May my eyes never see and my feet never take me to a society where half the people are held in silence. I hear the roar of women’s silence. I sense the rumble of their storm and feel the fury of their revolt.” 8 likes
