  1. looks like it's going to be very interesting

  2. Cant wait for the the authors interview =)

  3. This should prove to be both educational as well as interesting. Wollstonecraft's 'Vindication' is one I'd especially like to peruse!
    [Does anyone besides me remember the old Virginia Slims commercial from ages ago "You've Come a Long Way, Baby" ???]
