PublishingY wrong and that is a huge problem Later in the book when Feminism is tackled there is an attempt to show the various types of the that have developed however Radical Feminism is missed by various types of the movement that developed however Radical Feminism is missed by a decade and a half and really looks like Cultural Feminism that developed in the 1980s and has turned into Trans Exclusionary Feminism today This is just one example of a misinterpretation that kept popping p in the final part of the book when the evidence should make it accurate not lessAll
Of My Criticisms Aside Themy criticisms aside the of the information is sure to appeal to teens and adults so this book work would as a good introduction to the subject of women s roles in the history of our species I recommend teachers not Oracle Web Application Programming For Pl/Sql Developers use it as a textbook Beautiful pictures andick blurbs of women in history This would be a nice gift for teen or young woman The information given would probably spur a reader to do research into women they found interesting This book could have been so much It seems to be basically a list of women and events that had an affect on women s roles changing through the centuries Maybe if I had the hard copy and was able to see the pictures but I doubt it This hefty tome offers a fantastic overview of women s issues from prehistory to the present I have never seen a book like this before and it s about time someone paid attention to women s issues I ve read reviews in which some complained about inaccuracies or omissions in the book They may be right But this book doesn t intend to delve into any one issue in great detail If you d like to know you may research your favorite topic in detail The strength of this book lies in its ambitiously encyclopedic approach to all things impacting women from the Bronze Age to the Third Wave of feminism I was amazed to read all the stories about powerful and interesting women in this book The main takeaways for me were that nsurprisingly women have almost always gotten the short end of the stick and have been abused and maligned throughout history and that surprisingly there have nonetheless been examples of women leaders scholars soldiers artists scientists athletes writers and merchants who have broken societal molds to leave their marks on society In DK style the book is attractively designed Minism and gender politics to recent movements such as #MeToo and International Women's Day and the key role women have had in shaping our pastLearn about the everyday lives of women through the ages as well as the big names of women's history powerful inspirational and trailblazing women such as Cleopatra Florence Nightingale Emmeline Pankhurst Ev.

WAS FIRST DOCUMENTED SOME EVEN BCE ALSO INSIGHTFUL WASfirst documented some even BCE Also insightful was info from many other countries Women have been fighting marching pressing for change for centuries from all over the worldReally liked this volume some subjects I wished covered info But now I have clues for looking p information This review is part of the Vine programLooking for a decent coffee table book One that has short blurbs you can read but also sit down and read in one sitting This may be the ticket for you Highly illustrated with lots of blurbs it s perfect coffee table readingRanging the gamut from early history to the present this book is sectioned by time rather than subject And I honestly think that might have been to its downfall I would have rather seen this book grouped by topic and then chronological within those chapters A chapter on war rights art etc I m not saying it s bad the way it is but it could be betterBecause it is in short blurb format the pictures are the real star of this book With your snippets of information you get fully detailed rich colorful pictures And As a historian who has studied women s lives and the development of feminism for decades now I was hoping for a much better book for the average person but this is an engaging start if someone wants to learn about women s roles on this planet By colorful I m talking about the fact that every single page has color photos and drawings as well as interesting notes on a wide variety of subjectsIn terms of the content things have great breadth but not much depth A lot of cultures are covered from pre history to today but Often They Are Covered In 1 2 Pages Some Cultures they are covered in 1 2 pages Some cultures specific Vikings and Ancient Greece for example but others are lumped together in terms of geographic area like Africa and Mesoamerica Beyond the sections for specific or general regions there is a ton of thematic topics in each of the six parts of the bookThe majority of the facts are correct but some are tterl.
