This slim but powerful book is the result of two lectures Beard has given (2014 and 2017). Looking back at stories from ancient Greeks and the Romans, Beard tells us how women‘s voices are continued to be silenced from ancient times till today. An informative read in an engaging narrative.

Beard uses a famous cartoon from Punch magazine that illustrates what she calls “the Miss Triggs question”, in depicting how women‘s voices are ‘not publicly heard in our own contemporary culture.‘ The cartoonist is Riana Duncan, who captured the sexist atmosphere of the boardroom 30 years ago.

While I love watching documentaries, I don't read much non-fiction. Women and Power by Mary Beard has been my only #nonfiction read of the year so far! An interesting read full of personality - I wish it had been a little longer.

“We find repeated stress throughout ancient literature on the authority of the deep male voice in contrast to to the female...the tone and timbre of women‘s speech always threatened to subvert not just the voice of the male orator but also the social and political stability, the health, of the whole state.”

Adding this #Nonfiction #medical book to my #TBR stack. I'm excited to read Mukherjee's follow up to his wildly successful #EmperorofAllMaladies.
