From Eve to Dawn, A History of Women in the World, Volume I: Origins: From Prehistory to the First Millennium

From Eve to Dawn, A History of Women in the World, Volume I: Origins: From Prehistory to the First Millennium - Marilyn French While the writing style is often awkward and the text isn't as organized as I'd like, the information is fascinating. I found the sections discussing Greece, Rome, and western religion the most intriguing, possibly because I already had a good foundation in these histories and cultures to form a baseline for putting her writing into context.
