Start your review of Marriage As A Trade
This book is just brilliant. Written over a 100 years ago it brings up so many issues that are still true. The idea that gender is a social construct is the main theme of this book. The idea that women are being mistreated and limited by their circumstances and role simply to please men. There are SO many thought provoking and insightful passages here. I think it should be required reading and taught alongside other great 20th century philosophers.
