    schema:reviewBody ""In examining the goddesses worshipped by an entire nation, Molly Haskell reveals a good deal about our national character and our most cherished sexual myths. ... Concerned with the deeply ingrained belief of women's inferiority, she analyzes movies as a social product as well as a social arbiter, and she effectively demonstrates how women are encouraged to impose limitations on themselves by fashioning those selves after flickering shadows in a darkened auditorium--sexual creatures who possess neither ability nor ambition beyond their bodies. ... Both as an examination of film and as sociology, From Reverence to Rape is excellent."--Harriet Kriegel, The Nation." ;
