«La Breve storia delle donne è un libro ferocemente divertente, meravigliosamente costruito e altamente istruttivo per chiunque, uomo o donna che sia.» The Sunday Times
Questa «Breve storia delle donne» elenca tutto quel che abbiamo imparato sulle donne nei libri scolastici, che, a dire il vero, è ben poco. E ci ricorda alcune ridicole teorie sulle donne espresse da pensatori geniali. Come Charles Darwin, tanto celebrato per la sua mente aperta, obiettiva e scientifica, il quale era convinto che le donne non avrebbero mai raggiunto risultati notevoli nel campo del pensiero a causa del loro cervello di dimensioni ridotte. Preparatevi a ridere e a indignarvi e a guardare alla Storia con occhi nuovi….

This is a very fun Leggi tutto
This one is so...sad...and accurate..and sad ...ugly sad. If you're a person who think the most probable is that you know that, in the human kind history, women were relegate to minnor roles because the believe that they were incapable of think or doing things. Even the greatest minds of every genera Leggi tutto

Uma leitura rápida e cheia de sarcasmo sobre o motivo de não encontrarmos muitos nomes de mulheres quando estudamos a história da humanidade.
+Digital copy gently provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review+ My feeble tiny spongy brain feel like fainting and a bit histerical after reading this enlightening book about the historical vision of women from many ejem 'well knowing' men.

A unique tongue-in-cheek take on the history of women. I loved the sarcasm. Here are some of my favourite lines: In the Older Days there were no women which is why you don't come across them in history lessons at school.In the 700 years between Hildegard of Bingen and Jane Austen women writing was fr Leggi tutto
I love my history with a snide of snark. And does author Jacky Fleming ever deliver in The Trouble With Women . In this season of unbridled misogyny on display on the campaign trail, Fleming’s book provides the perfect antidote. This book, illustrated with winsome cartoons, recounts how “genius” afte Leggi tutto
