Off With Her Head: Three Thousand Years of Demonizing Women in Power 

New York Times best-selling author Eleanor Herman in her newest book explores the patterns that have been operating for more than three thousand years—and are still operating today—against powerful women across the globe, including Cleopatra, Anne Boleyn, Marie Antoinette, Catherine the Great, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, and more. Each chapter analyzes misogynistic methods to keep women down:

Her Overweening Ambition

Why Doesn’t She Do Something About Her Hair?

The Dangers of Female Hormones

The Alarming Shrillness of Her Voice

The Mysterious Unlikability of Female Candidates

She’s a Bitch and Other Animals

She’s a Witch and Other Monsters

The free, one hour Zoom meeting will begin promptly at noon.  Questions from attendees are encouraged and can be submitted when you register or during the event.
