The heart of this book is a war of the sexes carried out in poetry that could only be called ferocious. If the woman-hater decries women as crooked because they came from a rib, the woman wit retorted that women being twice refined were far above the crude stuff called man. This book, like Cynthia Russette's Sexual Science, is little read though one of the top dozen feminist books ever written.
