What if there was a matriarch, men ate the Pill, wore pehos “The boys said it was awkward and uncomfortable, cramming your penis into that stupid box. And it was so impractical when you had to pee. The book is not just an interesting – sometimes absolutely hilarious, sometimes tragic – role reversal, but is also a commentary on the supposed neutrality hiajs language.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Interesting take on our male-based society. This book reverses the gender roles in our culture so that women dominate society and language.

The new words can be a little hard at first but anyone with a passing familiarity of feminist literature should recognize the situation and setting egallia immediately.

Other reviews have called the book “dated” and while some outright gender discrimination that is pointed out here is no longer this common, the book isn’t nearly as dated as we could hope for.

The story is a little disjointed and sometimes it’s hard to comprehend the passage of time, especially when it jumps, but all-in-all it’s an interesting look at egaliaa setup of our society. The last chapter where there are “excerpts” of Petronius’s book is illuminating, and I would say vital reading for those who have disliked the book until that point. It’s not a comfortable read, nor an easy one, and dd who really dislike it might do well to truly and genuinely investigate why.

I found Brantenberg’s alternate reality to be both humorous and tragic at the same time. I couldn’t imagine a world in which men could be completely xe and patronized by women. The concept of being gang raped by women. The author’s colorful language, creative terminology and relatable storyline made for a great read. Who can’t relate to wanting more ls what society expects of you? In this book, men and women trade roles.

The planet is called Egalia. Women are the dominant ones.


Men are encouraged hijaz gain weight to be ‘pretty and plump’ and when they dress up, they wear sheaths over their exposed penises, which they decorate. Something of a product of its times, in places — it might help to know a little about the feminist movement of hkjas 60s and 70s — but not much dated for all of that, and rather grimly funny throughout. I read this for Women and Gender Studies.

I thought it was really interesting. The author creates a society where “normal” US gender roles are switched and language is changed to draw our attention to the inequalities in our society.

I started reading this book for my Women’s Studies class, but continued for myself. Interesting way of looking at the world if the roles where reversed. Great read and thought provoking: People interested in feminist issues or just want something to expand your thinking.

It really made me think. I read it in a Women’s Studies class in college, and it definitely left an impression on me. I suspect the copy editing of that version — a new format than the first Swedish hardcover, I presume — was a bit rushed, although the errors were not enough to distract substantially from my reading. This is a Scandinavian feminist classic, and a classic case of “what-if” alternate reality fiction.

I’m glad to have read it! The main twilight-zoneism is that it is written eggalia language that indicates clearly that this world is as matriarchal as ours is patriarchal. In English, there would be phrases like ladying over someone instead of lording over and having the ovaries to do something daring rather than the balls.

It’s a very simple twist but as it extends, and new examples keep popping up like mysterious linguistic swamp cadavers, the point is driven home rather thoroughly: Consciousness-raising, as in Marx although the “Egalian” version of Marx is Matraxis an important part of the development of the characters, as they go hojas innocent hljas complicit teenage boys to men who are aware of their own oppression.

Perhaps certain “activists” concerned with oppression of males should read this book to see what that actually would look like. Despite the heavy themes the book’s a fairly light read. The main character gets raped but hijaz is not dwelt on and he’s basically fine afterwards. The activists have serious grievances with their world but they’re also having fun realizing that they don’t have laa stick to all the rules set out for them.

For most of this book I kept thinking it was just “stating the obvious”, wishing it would take it a step further. It kind of does towards the end, but not as much as I would have liked. Parts of it also felt slightly dated, but still.

It’s a great and very thought provoking satire, really pinpointing some of the gender inequalities that still exist on so many levels in society. Really made me think about language and how it can expand or limit your thinking.

This is a satire and is interesting. Ein ziemlich klassischer, feministischer Roman aus den 70ern Jahren. Great concept, but I feel that it would have been better off as a short story. It lacks a decent plot so there is no need for ca pages.

And I hope the person who proofread this edition got fired, embarrassing amount of mistakes. It’s been awhile, but I remember really enjoying this depiction of a world where women are the dominant sex. It really made you think and I like the idea. But the story was a little drawn out. I read this when I was way too young to understand what the fuck was going on, so I was mostly just really confused.

I remember triangles of pubic hair, and that’s about it? This book has very interesting ideas, and you really have to think while reading it, but the story and the writing were kind of dull. A humorous and altogether thought-provoking read for the modern feminist.
