This is that book. The result is at times reminiscent of mid-century American women, and other times displays a deep distrust of men. This unique view of feminism sparks an appreciation for how far American women have come, and how similar challenges still present today are experienced in other parts of the world.Informative, yet almost artistic--in that, you find yourself wondering what life must be like for the author as she researches and writes this book. Its an experience in sheeps wool. A really interesting view on gender inequality.In and of itself, the contents of this book are somewhat offensive--to both women and men. Frequent generalizations and an old-fashioned view of women. However, given the background of why and how this was written, it provides a fascinating perspective on the state of female inequality.
