Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spine Chilling I really don't know where to begin. I read this book several months back, and it really was just like being thrown into a ice cold lake. It's terrifying, really, to think that all this happened, and we aren't told about it. Raises a lot of questions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Out Of The Dark Ages This book is a real eye-opener into the ways women have been treated and are still treated today. For centuries women have been taught to be ashamed. This book takes that away and empowers women. Though I wasn't too keen on the writing style in some parts the information and the research are invaluable.
