Abstract:

"Welcome to the land of Egalia, where the rules of society are very different. In this hilly seaside town, gender roles are topsy-turvy - "wim" wield the power while "menwim" mind the household chores. It has been this stringent for as long as anyone can remember.

"More than just a whimsical romp, Egalia's Daughters poses the question of whether the culprit in gender subjugation is gender itself or power - no matter who wields it."--BOOK JACKET.
