Down through the ages, women have been trouble, or maybe that should be they have been troubled, or perhaps trouble just follows them. Regardless, they have overcome their shortcomings! Even though they started out with heads that were too small, arms that were too short, and bodies that fell over when not supported by corsets, the rise of feminism after only 2,000 years is something to behold and to hold on to. This lovely little book filled with delightful illustrations and satirical commentary will charm the socks off both male and female readers. ( )

This was such fun. I was needing something light and funny the other night and this fit the bill. We may have far to go, but we've definitely come a long way in the past 100 years. ( )

Smart, snarky, dark satire look at the way women have been thought of and marginalized through the ages, in cartoon form... my only complaint was that it was too short and ended way too soon! ( )

Admirable second degré qui ne fait pas dans la finesse. Ça doit être encore plus drôle en VO, mais c'est déjà pas mal en français.

Autrefois, les femmes n'existaient pas et c'est pour cette raison qu'elles sont absentes des livres d'histoire. Il y avait des hommes et, parmi eux, un certain nombre de génies. ( )

I enjoyed reading this devilishly satirical book. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The Trouble with Women is a feminist's brilliant, tongue-in-cheek,look at women's "issues," "frailties," and "failures" in our not-so-distant history. Ever noticed that women don't feature much in history books, and wondered why? Then this is the book for you. In The Trouble with Women, feminist artist Jacky Fleming illustrates how the opinions of supposed male geniuses, such as Charles Darwin (who believed that women have smaller brains than men) and John Ruskin (who believed that women's main function was to praise men), have shaped the fate of women through history, confining them to a life of domesticity and very little else.--adapted from publisher description… (more)
