A clear, well-researched, erudite history. I found myself nodding and agreeing with Mr Holland's conclusions, and thanking whichever deity happened to be listening that he had written this book. If anyone doubts that misogyny exists, or that worldwide political, social, economic, religious and cultural groups are inherently sexist, they should read this and think again. How is it possible that the oppression of women is still allowed to continue? Why do women collude with this oppression? It is obvious why men do, they are privileged by the sexism, but why do women? This book can help one understand the reasons, give one hope for change, and is a clarion call to equality for all. I personally include all intersecting oppressed groups in that equality, as does Mr Holland. This should be a set text for schoolchildren...
