Carol Tavris's "The Mismeasure of Woman" offers the reader insight into the inequality and problems women face in society. I approached this book with the assumption that it would glorify women and belittle men. I figured that the author would blame all the problems women face on men. In Actuality, the author looked to society for the genuine source of women's inequality and never placed the blame on any one group of people. The book

women's problems. It provides both men and women with the information to improve relationships between lovers, co-workers, friends and family members of the opposite sex. It increases the awareness of society's influence of the behaviors of men and women without putting the entire blame on any certain group. In general I recommend this book to any individuals looking to expand their knowledge of human relations or to help vanquish the animosities across the gender line.
