Bestselling author, journalist, and human rights activist Sally Armstrong argues that humankind requires the equal status of women and girls.

Drawing on anthropology, social science, literature, politics, and economics, she examines the many beginnings of the role of women in society, and the evolutionary revisions over millennia in the realms of sex, religion, custom, culture, politics, and economics.
