Although it is quite possible that many will consider this book irreverent or disrespectful of ideas or institutions, the author is certain that they will also perceive it as a defender of women and their unquestionable transcendence throughout history. The main ideas the author now shares publicly, are ones the author has 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 the author enjoyed the company of friends, who frequently and generously lend their time to discuss with me their own opinions... the author believes 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This scholarly and superbly written book provides an original analysis of the forces that have determined feminine identity from ancient to contemporary times. Exploring the influence of biological, psychological, religious, and cultural forces, Dr L pez-Corvo identifies imprinting as the primary determinant of the power of women which also underlies the defensive devaluation of femininity by men, and women's confused search for an identity by competing with or imitating men. Offering a bold suggestion that benefits both men and women and allows each to be unique in their own way, Dr L pez-Corvo proposes that women could discover their true identity by undertaking an inner, albeit difficult, quest in which they accept and transcend the power of imprinting, realize the mystery of their femininity, and achieve the force of intellectual and artistic creativity. This is an insightful, refreshing, and much needed work with far-reaching implications for all human relationships.' - Graeme J. Taylor, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Toronto
