From eve to dawn; a history of women; v.2: The masculine mystique. (reprint, 2002)

French, Marilyn.

The Feminist Press


477 pages




This is the second of four volumes in which French fills out generally accepted human history with a focus on women's experiences in the world's civilizations from feudal Europe and Japan in the beginning of the second millennium through the French Revolution. Chapters focus on European expansion and appropriation in Africa, Latin America, and North America, also considering the North American Black experience during and after slavery. The text's language is non-technical and aims to reach a wide readership. French discusses women as they related with and were treated in spiritual, institutional, social, political, and family life, among other forums.
