The Trouble with Women PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Trouble with Women free pdf Can women be geniuses? Or are their arms too short? Why did we only learn about three women at school? What were all the others doing? The trouble with women is that for centuries they have done nothing at all worth mentioning. Not one tiny solitary thing. This is probably because, as the celebrated male genius Charles Darwin attested, their brains are far smaller than those of men. But the problem isn't just their tiny brains. As John Ruskin, another celebrated male genius, famously pointed out, what little intellect they do have is best used in praise, not invention or creation. 1066 and all that quite rightly omits women altogether. This book puts the women back in, but only in their proper place, of course.
