Closing the Gap
Exploring the History of Gender RelationsBook - 2002
Today's patriarchal societies have their roots in antiquity, a time when matrilineal societies gradually gave way to ancient civilizations in which men were granted more and more importance and power--and women were made not only subordinate, but also gradually separated from realms of the "male." In Closing the Gap, , Allerd Stikker argues that the male/female duality we still perceive has resulted in a loss of coherence and integrity for all people--and that only the unity and interdependence of the sexes can preserve a sustainable human society on our planet.
