WOMEN & POWER A Manifesto

by | Read by Mary Beard

Contemporary Culture • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The author--who also narrates this audiobook--is a highly respected professor of classics at Cambridge University. With insight and humor, she makes a case for redefining how women should be perceived--and perceive themselves--if they are to coexist with those of other genders on equal terms. She argues that as women have the opportunity to assume more power, their models of behavior shouldn't be based on male templates. One example she discusses is attitudes towards women's voices, which are often considered by men--and women--to be inappropriate for public speaking. So women, whether Hillary Clinton or the late UK prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, are urged to take lessons to modify them. Whether schooled or not, the author has a deep, sonorous voice and a wonderful English accent. L.W.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
