Grade 7-12-- An examination of the history of sexism from the time of the Garden of Eden, through the early stages of U. S. history, to the defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment. The point of view is liberal and consistently activist, with concluding chapters on how young people might become involved in "taking a stand" and one on short sketches of young activists. A listing of women's rights organizations completes the book. While more mature readers may be able to deal with the almost militant tone here, those who are less sophisticated may not. There is no brooking of accomodationist points of view, no consideration that compromises may need to be made with the status quo. This is a difficult book to handle, at least partly because the injustices presented in the historical section are glaring and therefore likely to produce anger. While one of the only books on this subject for high-school readers, it does not offer the flip side of protest--that it does not always succeed, and that it may have unpleasant consequences. --Ruth K.
