Summary
The volume opens with chapters comparing medieval Europe and Japan, disparate cultures which nevertheless shared traditions of male dominated aggression and competitiveness. The author then shows how, in Europe, this tradition led to colonialism and imperialism, and the subjugation of indigenous societies, just as women were subjugated in the conquerors' home countries. Only with the French Revolution did the political force women exerted powerfully change the course of history
Summary
Present a history of women from prehistoric times up to the present day, examining the changing roles of women in different ages, and covering such topics as work, marriage, family, sex roles, religion, and poltics
