    A very interesting and comprehensive history of women around the world. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and its discussion not only of the objects themselves, but their impact on and place in a much longer history of the female sex. 1 star off for occasional spelling mistakes...

    This book made me feel so much love and gratitude for women who had difficult life because they could make ours easier. I wish we had learned at least something about these amazing women in our history books. ...
