In 50 pages, History As Told By Women takes the reader on a journey...
Illustrated quotes by feminist historians and writers are used to describe exactly how patriarchy - society ruled by men - was created only about 5,000 years ago.
Together, the text and pictures describe how this process involved militarisation, and how it affected family, work, law and religion.
From the deep past to the present day
Selected quotations by feminist writers about Greece and Rome; colonisation, slavery and the witch hunts; capitalism, socialism and suffrage, take us through to explanations of neoliberalism today, chosen from Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine.
Other featured authors include Andrea Dworkin, Dorothy Roberts, Angela Davis and Matilda Joslyn Gage.
