MEDIA REVIEWS
'fine anthology ... Woman Defamed and Woman Defended will be staying out on the desk' Times Literary Supplement
'fascinating anthology of medieval writings ... the selections in Woman Defamed are presented in clear, modern English, including many new translations by Blamires ... I admit I took perverse delight in dipping into the wellsprings of Western misogyny. Ultimately, however, skimming for fun and outrage does a disservice to the real importance of Blamires' book. A steady, cumulative reading of the anti-feminist tracts in Woman Defamed is an opportunity to peer into the distant past and find it disturbingly familiar.' Pamela J. Petro, The Women's Review of Book, Vol. X, No. 5/February 1993
A most significant contribution...This anthology meets the urgent need for a single and substantial sourcebook * The Way *
