Not a terrible book, and actually quite interesting at some points, but there are absolutely no new conclusions here and the author’s tone can be so silly at times. When an author purporting to write a book on women’s roles in history has to explain to her audience what the three waves of feminism are, I just can’t take it too seriously, you know?

Basically, it’s a good audiobook to put on in the background.

An enlightening and acerbic look at the roles of women and how they were seen during the Middle Ages. Janega deftly weaves history with wit in this whirlwind primer on the many misconceptions of and about medieval-era women, their sources, and how they are still influencing us today.

There is much work left to do....
