A story about "The Creation of Patriarchy"

by Gerda Lerner

Wow. One of my favorite books. I think this is my favorite in non-fiction. Very well written with a multi-faceted feminist critique of sexism in historiography, as well as the best overview of the history of women and patriarchy that I’ve read, from pre-history on up.

I read parts of this in college. We called our teacher the femi-nazi... funny, I later turned into that myself and have gone back to read it again for my own work. Sometimes our "insightful" youth bites us in the ass :-) LOL
