This is a guide for women and men, young and old, with tools for everyone--educators, policy makers, therapists, and anyone who wants to navigate oppressive patriarchy--to find specific ways to handle the workplace, health care, education, or deal with their own personal relationships. Everyone should read this book to heal and move forward, to create a new society, empowered and stronger for it."
