We challenge you to find a better book with which to celebrate International Women's Day. In the Sunday Times bestselling WOMEN & POWER, Mary Beard explores how women's voices have been silenced throughout history, and how women have been kept from postitions of power by an oppressive patriarchy. Drawing on examples from the classical world to the modern day, we see how embedded these issues are in our society.
