In this analysis of the history of women's political, cultural, physical, and economic repression, French argues that women's suppression in society is an intrinsic part of our culture. From the prejudicial treatment of women in medicine, law, education, and business, to the hatred of women as expressed in advertising, the arts, and popular culture, The War Against Women is a devastating indictment of our values and an important step toward an urgent public discussion of human morality. 224 pp.
"A sobering reminder that the situation of women may still be so universally abysmal that if any other ethnic, national, or religious group were attacked, dominated and maimed at the same rate, it could be said to constitute a state of emergency or war."—The New York Times Book Review
"If you can read only one book about what's wrong with this country, The War Against Women is it."—Gloria Steinem
