Myths of Male Dominance by Eleanor Burke Leacock

Book Description

Drawing on extensive historical and cross-cultural research, Leacock shows that claims of male superiority to women are based on carefully contructed myths with no basis in actual historical fact. She also documents numerous historical examples of egalitarian gender relations.
