RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 226050669 LA English T1 From eve to dawn : a history of women. Volume 2. Volume 2. A1 French, Marilyn,, PB Feminist Press at the City University of New York PP New York YR 2008 SN 9781558615670 1558615679 AB The volume opens with chapters comparing medieval Europe and Japan, disparate cultures which nevertheless shared traditions of male dominated aggression and competitiveness. The author then shows how, in Europe, this tradition led to colonialism and imperialism, and the subjugation of indigenous societies, just as women were subjugated in the conquerors' home countries. Only with the French Revolution did the political force women exerted powerfully change the course of history.
