The facts are indisputable. When women get even a bit of education, the whole of society improves. When they get a bit of healthcare, everyone lives longer. In many ways, it has never been a better time to be a woman: a fundamental shift has been occurring. Yet from Toronto to Timbuktu the promise of equality still eludes half the world's population. In her 2019 CBC Massey Lectures, award-winning author, journalist, and human rights activist Sally Armstrong illustrates how the status of the female half of humanity is crucial to our collective surviving and thriving. 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. What ultimately comes to light is that gender inequality comes at too high a cost to us all.… (mer)

This was a 2019 CBC Massey lecture. Armstrong, a well traveled journalist, gives an examined look at injustice and inequality for girls and women. She has many stories to tell and gives an historic and contemporary look at major concerns. Many of these concerns are horrific. At times she draws some over generalized conclusions (full of hyperbole) and at times the book was hard to read as there are so many tales of woe. She is correct to take this subject on however as much work needs to be done. She does give some interesting book references. ( )

"I know that many men and even women are afraid and angry when women do speak, because in this barbaric society, when women speak truly they speak subversively -- the can't help it: if you're underneath, if you're kept down, you break out, you subvert. We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains. That's what I want -- to hear you erupting. You young Mount St. Helenses who don't know the power in you -- I want to hear you." -- Ursula K. Le Guin
