  • Half History – Half Opinion

    This begins as a wonderful history of the hiding of the intelligence of women. From being invisible to the world in spite of their genius to being celebrated for their genius and everything in-between. The author explores everything! I love the depth of her research. One of her points is the systemic sexism of Western Society. much like the systemic racism, we are exploring. There may be quite a bit of truth in that. Indeed, the status of women and minorities in the US has been hand in hand since the Civil War. From voting rights, acceptance in schools of higher learning, ability to achieve high rank in the military, it is all somewhat comparable. In today's world, we are still seeing 'the first woman to do this and that' because there are fewer instances of 'the first man of color to achieve this or that'. As she gets to the modern world, more of her talking points are her opinions without supporting facts. She begins then to frequently stand on her soapbox making claims that are just her personal and political bias. I found myself yelling at my e-reader about so many of her unfounded points in the second half of her book. Her liberal bias really stood out when she called out Laurel Thatcher Ulrich as ' an unlikely feminist heroine' because the chaired professor at Harvard was a Mormon mother of five and originally from Utah. She then praises Senator Elizabeth Warren for not yielding the floor when her allotted time was up – violating the Senate Rules of Order- something somewhat commonplace, but the author rates her highly for it because of Warren's 'I Persisted' buzz phrase. The author's Liberal bias took over and the second half of the book truly went downhill from there. Read it, enjoy it, but see through the pitfalls that hide opinion as researched fact. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
