'Although it is quite possible that many will consider this book irreverent or disrespectful of ideas or institutions, I am certain that they will also perceive it as a defender of women and their unquestionable transcendence throughout history. The main ideas I now share publicly, are ones I have considered for many years: the classification of the 'Eves', the masochistic character of women, the concept of giraffe women, etc. Other ideas appeared afterwards, some at the last moment, as I enjoyed the company of friends, who frequently and generously lend their time to discuss with me their own opinions...I believe that there is a universal feminine principle just as there is a masculine one, the difference remains in the fact that, from the very beginning of creation, everything about man has already been said and nothing continues to be undisclosed, whereas woman, is an untold story yet to be discovered.' - From the Foreword.'Such feminine principle must be related with the socio-biological power of imprinting, with the guilt that such fatalistic puissance of imprinting induces, together with the apparent complication of an anatomically hidden sexuality. This essay will attempt to define aforementioned feminine principle, to evaluate the obstacles that obstruct woman's road towards self-illumination and to likewise consider, the real course woman ought to take in order to finally find her proper identity, the idiosyncrasy and authenticity that will define women of the future, perhaps many years from now: the "Vindicated Eve"'.- From the author's Foreword
