Women & Power: A Manifesto by Mary Beard

This book is a compelling exploration of the history of women in power, examining the cultural underpinnings of misogyny from ancient times to the present day. It argues that women have always been excluded from positions of power, and that this exclusion is deeply ingrained in our collective psyche. The author uses examples from history, literature, and contemporary politics to illustrate her points, challenging readers to reconsider their own assumptions about gender and power. She also offers insights into how we can break down these barriers and create a more equitable society.
