About the Book

Women have been polarised throughout history - the angel or the whore - but this has not always been the case.

Women in history show just how complicated and brilliant women can be, but often their image has been altered beyond recognition by later writers. They have been turned into stories, rather than historic fact.

In myths, many women have been shaped by later writers, and are often stripped down to just one aspect. The myths give their full depth, but this is often forgotten.

This can change.
