I really enjoyed this book. It provided incredible insight into historical and social issues that impact women. It was thought-provoking, well-written, and interesting. As I was reading it, I was either nodding in agreement, pausing to ponder her statements, or feeling empowered to do something about some of the injustices that women face. This book really made me look at things more deeply, whether they be movies, books, or music.

I highly encourage both women and men to read this book.

An essential feminist text, tracing the media bias that perpetuates stereotypes against women.

I'm not really into conspiracy theories, and this one is full of them. However, it is an interesting account of the fight women have had to gain equality.

Bought this book but was not able to read it. I have heard that it is very good, but it is only collecting dust. I would rather have someone else own it, who would appreciate it, rather than let it lay around any longer.
