A History of the World with the Women Put Back In A History of the World with Women

Author(s): Kerstin Lücker; Ute Daenschel


Not just another collection of short biographies, this book adds women's stories to the wider context of global history. Our perception of history is formed by those who record it, and traditionally it has been told by men, for men, about the achievements of men. Women were often deemed less important, their letters destroyed, their stories ignored.This book attempts to discover some of the missing pieces of the big puzzle of world history, by examining the sources and telling women's stories alongside men's. It's a history of sexism and of the ideas and assumptions that allowed misogyny to become so entrenched worldwide. Looking at the rise and fall of religions and ideas about society and how to live, it asks 'have we always been patriarchal?', and if not where and when did it all start? Includes Empress Theodora, La Malinche, Cristine de Pizan, Olga of Kiev, Harriet Tubman and many, many more...
