Carol Tavriss The Mismeasure of Women offers the reader insight into the inequality and problems women face in society I approached this book with the assumption that it would glorify women and belittle men I figured that the author would blame all the problems women face on men After completing the book I had a very different opinion The author looked to society for the actual source of womens inequality and never placed the blame on any one group of people The book explains that although there are differences in the behavior of men and women in certain situations both types of behavior are equal and for the most part influenced by society It is for that reason I recommend The Mismeasure of Women for both male and female readers It offers a wealth of information and insight that would benefit society as a whole as well as the relationships between men and women To help explain my recommendation and reasoning it is necessary to take a short look at what the book is saying The book starts off by talking about the various reasons society feels women to be inferior to men It seems to be built into our modern society to view men as the norm Tavris explains early in the book about the experiments that were set up to study the male and female brain The scientists were trying to prove that the male brain is superior to the female brain The results were usually not what the scientist expected and were often never published It was found in the study of the brain and almost all other areas where men and women are thought to differ that the male and female are alike in more ways that they are different Tavriss The Mismeasure of Women shows that point very clearly Thus one must not overlook perhaps the most obvious conclusion which is that basic patterns of male and female brain asymmetry
