I am a student at the University of Utah, taking a diversity class. One of our readings is chapter 10 from Unraveling the Gender Knot. As I was reading this chapter I was so engrossed by the message of the content that I had to go online and find out more about this book. If chapter 10 is this impressive I will be purchasing the book to have in my library of the most meaningful and life changing books to read. Thank you Alan G. Johnson for getting the message out to both men and women about how we can live equally and rid of the oppression women (as well as other populations)live with everyday.
