Women & Power: A Manifesto

Women & Power: A Manifesto

by Mary Beard Author

Historian Mary Beard draws on her profound understanding of Greek and Roman classics as well as her forays into present-day Twitter to write this magnificent manifesto on the way men have trolled powerful women across history, and what we can do about it. Connecting Penelope in the Odyssey with Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren, this slim, serious volume is written with wit, power, and fascinating heroism. Beard, a powerful woman in her own right, has battled men telling her to sit down and shut up for her whole career, and her wise perspective is timely and necessary.
