The book is heavy-handed in many spots, but I loved how it‘s central thought experiment caused me to consider Alderman‘s thesis in depth.

In this short book that contains two essays, Beard looks at how women has been silenced since the dawn of time and how women who speak up or doesn‘t follow the norm are treated.

AnneCecilie @Siri_reads nei. Den har jeg ikke hørt om. Hvilke kvinner handler den om og ligger den der enda? 2w

This book details how women are perceived when they enter traditionally masculine fields like politics. Beard chronicles how women have been silenced since the ancient Greco-Roman period till how women are targeted on social media and other online platforms. Beard focuses on women in politics but her historical examples are revealing. #NFNov

Already in the Odyssey, a women is told to shut up. The Odyssey is more than Odysseus story of getting home after the Trojan Wars, and his wife Penelope waiting on him. It is also about their son Telemachus, and his growing up.

So the first time a women is told to shut up is when Telemachus tells his mother that speech is the business of men.

I had no idea that this was the beginning of Western literature

Bookwomble Women generally didn't have a good time of it in Ancient Greece. 2w

Bookmail! Anyone read this book? I'm quite looking forward to this one. I find that the older I get, the more I'm aware of the inequality between men and women.

This slim but powerful book is the result of two lectures Beard has given (2014 and 2017). Looking back at stories from ancient Greeks and the Romans, Beard tells us how women‘s voices are continued to be silenced from ancient times till today. An informative read in an engaging narrative.
