    Everyone Should Read This Book

    I read books such as Brain Sex and all of the Mars Venus books and sadly thought society must be mad,,,bent on dividing the genders into haves and have nots,,,then my faith was renewed when I read Myths of Gender and it supported what I thought all along about the so called 'research' and divisions of mind, thought and abilities made to seem as 'fact' by 'researchers' with an agenda.I suggest women read this book,it will help you get those societal cobwebs out of your mind so you know that you are equal and limitless,,, you are an individual and you get merit for what you accomplish instead of allowing society you can't do math,read maps etc.. No one can tell you who you ARE,what you're capable of or how you're supposed to think.. this books will clarify that.
