Illustrations The Author Sounds Young To Me The author sounds young to me passionate and sincere She rails about the patriarchy and puts her own political views as general knowledge her views of transgender politics abortions tc being as much a part of the feminist canon as From the Enemy's Point of View: Humanity and Divinity in an Amazonian Society eual pay forual work and that is what makes her sound young But I recommend this book for its history and you can take the ideology with however many grains of salt you choose none of course if so indicated I have to add that the placing of the abortion issue into the women s rights arena ie a woman s body is hers and she can do what she likes with it and whatever hapless passengers she may have and out of the human rights arena ie the human right not to be slaughtered in the womb before Doris Salcedo ever drawing a breath is a triumph of Satan He has us all but womenspecially arguing abortion as an individual woman s choice rather than as murder which is Twelve Days of Pleasure exactly what it is This shows the problem with writing history as a personal polemic My book of Women Our Story would include abortion with the other methods of infanticide practiced throughout history whereas hers includes abortion with votes for women and the discarding of the corset Obviously I am right but that still would notxcuse my publishing this hypothetical book as objective history rather than rants A rant by any other name and Gods Choice even including bibliography and cited references is still a rantven if you call it a book review for Goodreads As a historian who has studied women s lives and the development of feminism for decades now I was hoping for a much better book for the average person but this is an Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye engaging start if someone wants to learn about women s roles on this planet By colorful I m talking about the fact thatvery single page has color photos and drawings as well as interesting notes on a wide variety of subjectsIn terms of the cont.

book lies in its ambitiously ncyclopedic approach to all things impacting women from lies in its ambitiously Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild encyclopedic approach to all things impacting women from Bronze Age to the Third Wave of feminism I was amazed to read all the stories about powerful and interesting women in this book The main takeaways for me were that unsurprisingly women have almost always gotten the shortnd of the stick and have been abused and maligned throughout history and that surprisingly there have nonetheless been Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets examples of women leaders scholars soldiers artists scientists athletes writers and merchants who have broken societal molds to leave their marks on society In DK style the book is attractively designed and features interesting photos onvery page This review is part of the Vine programLooking for a decent coffee table book One that has short blurbs you can read but also sit down and read in one sitting This table book One that has short blurbs you can read but also sit down and read in one sitting This be the ticket for you Highly illustrated with lots of blurbs it s perfect coffee table readingRanging the gamut from Electromyography for Experimentalists early history to the present this book is sectioned by time rather than subject And I honestly think that might have been to its downfall I would have rather seen this book grouped by topic and then chronological within those chapters A chapter on war rights arttc I m not saying it s bad the way it is but it could be betterBecause it is in short blurb format the pictures are the real.

summary Women by D.K. PublishingEnt things have great breadth but not much depth A lot of cultures are covered from pre history to today but often they are covered in 1 2 pages Some cultures are specific Vikings and Ancient Greece for xample but others are lumped together in terms of geographic area like Africa and Mesoamerica Beyond the sections for specific or general regions there is a ton of thematic topics in Runaway Wedding each of the six parts of the bookThe majority of the facts are correct but some are utterly wrong and that is a huge problem Later in the book when Feminism is tackled there is an attempt to show the various types of the movement that have developed however Radical Feminism is missed by over a decade and a half and really looks like Cultural Feminism that developed in the 1980s and has turned into Trans Exclusionary Feminism today This is just onexample of a misinterpretation that kept popping up in the final part of the book when the vidence should make it accurate not lessAll of my
Criticisms Aside The Packagingaside the packaging the information is sure to appeal to teens and adults so this book work would as a good introduction to the subject of women s roles in the history of our species I recommend teachers not use it as a textbook Excellent Really appreciated the visuals of the book as well the art photographs and graphic design Beautiful pictures and uick blurbs of women in history This would be a nice gift for teen or young woman The information given would probably spur a reader to do research into women they found interesting This is a beautifully printed comprehensive well researched book dedicated to the story of women verywhere I could La heredera del mar easily see someone giving a copy to a little girl to inspire her to dream beyond what society thinks is appropriate for her to accomplish This book could have been so much It seems to be basically a list of women andvents that had an affect on women s roles changing through the centuries Maybe if I had the hard copy and was able to see the pictures but I doubt it I m frustrated I picked up this book because I like the concept I do not think it lives up to its promise that it Covers Women Of All women of all and thnicities fairly Plainly put it s Euro centric just as most history books are with a nominal respect to Africa and Asia It also largely ignores LGBT people throughout the history and this is a problem if we are serious about discussing patriarchy Patriarchy is a system A Peron and Rosa Parks and discover the unsung contributions of lesser known women who have changed the world and the forgotten vents of women's historyPlacing women firmly center stage Women An Illustrated History shows women where they came from and in celebrating the achievements of women of the past offers positive role models for women of tod. ,
