Misogyny : the world's oldest prejudice by Jack Holland( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this compelling, powerful book, the late Irish journalist and essayist Jack Holland sets out to answer a daunting question: how do you explain the oppression and brutalization of half the world's population by the other half, throughout history? The result is an eye-opening journey through centuries, continents and civilizations as it looks at both historical and contemporary attitudes to women. Misogyny encompasses the Church, witch hunts, sexual theory, Nazism, pro-life campaigners, and finally, today's developing world, where women are increasingly and disproportionately at risk because of radicalized religious beliefs, famine, war, and disease. Extensively researched, highly readable and provocative, this book chronicles an ancient, pervasive and enduring injustice. The questions it poses deal with the fundamentals of human existence -- sex, love, violence -- that have shaped the lives of humans throughout history, and ultimately result in an abuse of human rights on a nearly unthinkable scale

How do you explain the oppression and brutalization of half the world's population by the other half throughout history? This is an eye-opening journey through centuries, continents and civilizations as it looks at both historical and contemporary attitudes to women. Encompassing the Church, witch hunts, sexual theory, Nazism and pro-life campaigners, we arrive at today's developing world, where women are increasingly and disproportionately at risk because of radical religious belief, famine, war and disease.

It's time to recognize that the treatment of women amounts to nothing less than an abuse of human rights on an unthinkable scale
