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.
