Overview Patriarkatet faller

Through history feminists have been ridiculed and harassed all around the World. In the 18th Century well-known feminists where decapitated in the guillotines, and in the 19th Century the Suffragettes were thrown in jail. In our time feminist activists are imprisoned in countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia. Feminists are labelled as moody, angry and unattractive. Still, new generations are daring to proudly call themselves feminists.

Author Marta Breen and illustrator Jenny Jordahl have through a number of books proved themselves as great communicators when it comes to the history of women. In this book they take the reader for a joyride through the cultural history of the patriarchy. With a good dose of humour the tell the stories about how men from Aristoteles to Woody Allen has described the world through the male gaze. They tell the stories of the women who through history has fought the oppression – and they rank the world’s worst sexists through times.

Join us in finally taking down the patriarchy!
