Description

Evelyn Reed takes us on an expedition through prehistory from cannibalism to culture and uncovers the world of the ancient matriarchy. Tracing the origins of the "incest taboo," blood rites, marriage, and the family, she reveals women s leading and still largely unknown contributions to the development of civilization. By pinpointing the relatively recent factors that led to pervasive discrimination against women as a sex, she offers fresh insights on the struggle against women s oppression and for the liberation of humanity. Reed refutes the myth that human nature is to blame for the wars, greed, and inequalities of class-divided societies.
