Crackling with controversy and caustic wit, In Defense of Women is H. L. Mencken's irreverent look at the relationship between the sexes. Although Mencken didn't champion women's rights, he described women as wiser than men and cited numerous examples of the female's overwhelming skill and cunning. Originally published in 1922, this book considers topics that remain of vital interest to today's readers, including monogamy, prostitution, the double standard, sexual harassment, and declining birth and marriage rates. Written in Mencken's characteristic no-nonsense manner, In Defense of Women is a book for all time. Newly designed and typeset by Waking Lion Press.

About the Author:

H. L. Mencken (1880-1956) was an American journalist and author. Skilled in satire, he was famous for the pungent criticism he aimed at all complacent attitudes and for his vigorous attacks on the shams and stuffiness of his day. Among his works are Ventures into Verse, Treatise on the Gods, and his autobiography Happy Days.
