Description - Women of the Forest by Yolanda Murphy
The new foreword-written collectively by respected anthropologists who were all students of the Murphys-is both a tribute to the Murphys and a critical reflection on the continued relevance of their work today. "A salute to women's liberation in a portrait of a fascinating primitive people."-Margaret Mead "Women of the Forest restores something of the balance that has been missing from conventional anthropology-an anthropology largely written by men-in giving this lucid account of the fundamental roles played by women in all societies. Very readably it sets the record straight for widely but wrongly held beliefs concerning many aspects of the roles of the sexes in all societies."-Ashley Montagu
