From Eve to Dawn , A History of Women , Volume 2

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is a seminal three-volume work, that covers the history of women throughout the world, from earliest times to the present. Marilyn French, internationally bestselling author of The Women's Room, has spent over two decades with a team of researchers and historians examining women's roles and activities in various civilizations and societies throughout the ages. This volume investigates the role of women in society from feudal times up to the French Revolution. She begins with Europe and Japan, two countries vastly different in culture and tradition, yet similar in their male-dominated aggression and competitiveness. In all these different countries in all these different times, Marilyn French keeps asking the question: How did it happen that women had no power and no independence, that they suffered constant abuse and yet they nourished the family unit and preserved their culture and society? Along the way she provides vivid portraits of exceptional women such as Eleanor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc, Sor Juana Ines le la Cruz, Mary Ingles, and Harriet Jacobs. In its breadth and its scope, this is a fascinating story peopled by remarkable women. Very good condition.
