    1. I can't believe this book was written in the 1990s, and not the 1970s. For the most part, I find this project highly annoying and self-important. However, there are some chapters in the middle that chronicle the history of many earlier-generation female anthropologists, including Margaret Mead, Elsie Clews Parsons, Ruth Benedict, Zora Neale Hurston, and others. The book is worth picking up for that middle section. Spare yourself the rest, though.

    2. It will be interesting to see how this book ages. It was extremely important to me at one time, then became an object of embarassment, and now I feel like tying up first year anthro grads and forcing them to really read it.
