I read this book the first time when I was enrolled at a Gender Studies course at the University of Copenhagen. Sadly, this book is still very relevant today. It should be read by every one, especially if you are female and living in the Middle East or in the United States of America. The extreme right turn, and with the consequent denial of women's rights to their own bodies) that is happening in several American states is frightening, the American government needs to wake up. I hope that someone will pass this book on to Obama and his administration so they can put a stop to it. I'm definitely happy to be a female Dane living in the Netherlands.
