Systemic Misogyny Even in Literature? Of Course.

Visit me!

As we pivot to a world of post-patriarchy, let’s look at literature.

Are most published books written by men?

Are most characters in children’s books introducing and reinforcing patriarchy?

iwd-2017Yes, of course.

Awareness is the first step to a solution.

  1. See what inventive people in Cleveland have done to illustrate this crisis, above: turning books by male authors backwards to demonstrate the inequality.
  2. Then watch this video to see quite blatantly what it’s like to be a child learning about gender roles and entitlements.

Roll up your sleeves and get busy!
