Pressestimmen"American scholar of classics Vivante explores the divine figures and the actual women who embodied the various transmutations of the concepts of femaleness in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome across four millennia. She considers such aspects as women's rituals, health and medicine, the economic bases of women's lives, women who ruled, war, and women's philosophical writings and poetry." - Reference & Research Book News
