In the Library:  The Ascent of Women - Sally Armstrong

This is an easy and a hard book to read. Easy because Sally Armstrong is a journalist and her book flows like a well-written, accessible magazine article with vivid anecdotes mixed with the hard facts and statistics. It is an extraordinarily difficult book to read because she does not pull any punches.
