Read in May, 2011

A little bit dated (I think it was written during the Clinton-administration pre-Lewinsky), this was at times thought-provoking and at times frustrating. I liked a lot of it (and even noted a few particular passages regarding women in religion that made me smile), but at times it got so buried in examples or repeating metaphors that the original point the author was trying to make got lost. And at times its tone was--and I hesitate to use the word regarding a book entitled "Bitch," but it was what it was--strident.
