At the moment I am reading a book Sex in History by Reay Tannahill. It is an interesting read for me as a feminist and just a woman. It is a rather thorough study of relationship between the sexes and it also touches upon the question of equality / lack of it between them (women of course were for the most part the disadvantaged sex - the second sex as Simone de Beauvoir would call it) . A very good thing for someone single on Valentine’s day … just joking – it is good on any other day as well – this book I mean :)
Here is a review of the book from the Time Magazine.
