The Less Noble Sex: Scientific, Religious, and Philosophical Conceptions of Woman's Nature
Indiana University Press, 1993 - 224 pàgines
This book looks at five major beliefs about woman's nature generally accepted by Western philosophers, theologians, and scientists from the classical period to the nineteenth century. These are that: woman is less perfect than man, woman possesses inferior rational capacities, woman has a defective moral sense, man is the primary creative force, and that woman is in need of control.
