Review:
Finally, I have gotten around to reading one of the greater historical non-fiction books about feminism and it was such an interesting read.

I must say, I found the first essay exhausting, and I was thinking this book was overrated. However, the rest of the essays were really enjoyable and interesting. I thought it was fascinating to read about women in history, or rather, the lack of women in history, and how the female sex has been done a great injustice in not being educated. I think this is very important, even today, but not just for women, but for anyone who is not educated - it's a great waste of potential.

I also found the parts about relationships between women to be interesting, although this isn't discussed in length. I think it's a very important topic.

I also found some parts quite inspiring, and I think a lot of people would get something out of reading this.

As this book was published close to a hundred years ago, there are of course some things that are a bit outdated. But overall, the discussions are interesting and there a lot of themes in this that are still relevant today.
