From Eve to Dawn: A History of Women: Masculine Mystique (Volume II)

From Eve to Dawn: A History of Women: Masculine Mystique (Volume II)In the second volume of this four volume series about women in history, French discusses feudalism in Europe and Japan and the European invasion of Africa and the Americas, thoroughly accounting the genocide and enslavement of indigenous populations in Latin America and the importation of enslaved men and women from Africa to the American continent All the while, of course, focusing on the situation of women in each society To me, what left the deepest impression was the frank description of the horrors carried out by the European invaders of the Americas While aware of the history, every account I had until now come across was substantially attenuated.French s in depth portrayal of the lives of women in this period gives the reader a wholly new perspective into the history, one that has been repeatedly erased, ignored and forgotten Her effort in bringing these issues back up in a complete and accessible way are truly remarkable.The only thing missing from this book was a thorough final revision before publishing It felt like some paragraphs were repetitive or that they needed to be repositioned here and there Also, some minor inconsistencies in the writing, such as the Igbo people being sometimes spelled Igbo and other times Ibo, give the reader the impression that the book needed a few corrections.Despite this criticism, this book is an absolute must read for anyone interested in history and gender issues Ideally, a revised and condensed version of these four volumes would be a required reading in every high school. While interesting and well researched with lots of references notes, this was still a bit dry and really just beat into one s head all the ways that women have been oppressed over this time period There s a lot of information about the colonization of the new world including Mexico and central America, as well as how slavery affected both female slaves and the white women.
