Book Review


Shred any misconceptions you may still hold about the impact women have had on history through the stories in these pages. Globally and from the halls of the ages rise women and girls who have whipped the shoddy expectations from the leaders and men in their lives. Explore the shattered norms in the wake of Mongolian princesses, suburban young women, adopted Jamacians, ruthless queens, and celebrated athletes. Adams and Sarkeesian outline the undeniable precedent laid as a firm foundation for the launch of all women and girls in our generation. Physically, mentally, and in capacity for evil, women are equal to men. Adams and Sarkeesian take a sturdy club to the assumptions of weakness and hollow virtue ascribed to women as inherent.
