I actually learned a lot from this book and not just about women and booze - I learned a lot about the history of alcohol and was super intrigued throughout the whole book. Mallory O'Meara does an excellent job of giving readers the history of women and booze while also highlighting some extremely influential women along the way. There were so many interesting tid bits about how alcohol was made - where customs and laws came from - and of course - how women got the short end of the stick time and time again. Women do not get nearly enough credit for their impact and are even now still overshadowed by their male counterpoints. I think this book is important for anyone who likes learning about history and drinking. A fun and extremely enlightening read! ( )

This book was an epic read! In short, it goes through the history of “girly” drinks but once you get to reading, it’s so much more. The author’s sarcasm and wit are a highlight throughout the book. There were many times I found myself laughing at a story that the author had included. The Prohibition chapter was my favorite but overall this is one of the best nonfiction books I’ve read this year. If you like alcohol and history, I highly recommend this book! ( )

A fascinating history of how women have been integral to the use and role of alcohol in human (and pre-human) society. ( )

In this enlightening and entertaining survey of women and alcohol, feminist and very funny author O’Meara takes readers on a dipsomaniacal journey through numerous cultures ... O’Meara deftly blends in equal measures of social history, gossip, and solid research, and adds enjoyable footnotes. The final take-away is that despite male interference, ranging from sanctimonious condemnation of women who drink in public to harsh punishments...women have discovered, invented, advanced, championed, and celebrated alcohol.

Her subjects range from the 12th-century Benedictine mother superior who realized hops could keep beer fresh, to Catherine the Great, who convinced soldiers to overthrow her husband by promising them vodka. Throughout, O’Meara uses what might seem lighthearted trivia to build spot-on social critique: “The double standard that drinking women face is deeply rooted in male anxieties about... women acting like people, not property.” Elegantly woven into each cheeky chapter is rigorous historical context; a profile of the 19th-century widow who popularized Champagne, for instance, also educates readers on cocktail culture in the United States before dovetailing with the story of Japanese sake revolutionary Tatsu’uma Kiyo. O’Meara glides easily from the 17th-century pulquerias of Mexico to the feminine “fern bars” of the 1970s, making sure not to forget the queen of girly drinks: the Cosmopolitan. Provoking both thought and laughter, this serves as bracing refreshment from a master textual mixologist.

The double standard that drinking women face is deeply rooted in male anxieties about control and their fear of women acting like people, not property.
Before there was bourbon, before there was beer, before there was wine, there was bad fruit.
Regardless of what you think of her, thousands of years after her death, you know who Cleopatra is.
While not universal in Egypt, it was much more common for girls to be educated there than in Greece. Along with being able to drink, Egyptian women could make their own marriages, inherit wealth, hold property independently and get divorced. They did not have to submit to their husbands’ control.
Traits that would be prized in Egyptian women, such as being strong-minded and bold, were reviled in Roman women. In Rome, women who didn’t stay sober, contain their opinions and desires, and tamp down their sexuality were abhorred.
