An analysis of woman's status from pre-history to the modern day, this book presents her place and role in virtually every known culture throughout history, against the ethical, economic, religious, artistic and political conditions which have determined it. This global study of woman's status, from Mother Goddess of the Palaeolithic era to contemporary woman, from the first feminist revolt in ancient Greece and Rome, to the present Women's Movement, stresses the difference between the western and more ancient civilizations of India and China, highlighting the images of Byzantine, mediaeval and reformed woman, the virago and the witch, and includes individual portraits, from Cleopatra to Indira Gandhi.
