THE SECRET HISTORY OF WEEDS
What Women Need to Know About Their History
A Book by Julia Hughes Jones
Martin Luther's observation that females are weeds continues to plague women after nearly 500 years. Throughout history little value has been placed on females other than as child bearers and hearth keepers, or, in reality, as a support structure for the deeds and misdeeds of the men in their lives.
Julia Hughes Jones, a pioneering woman politician, reveals through carefully selected stories what women's issues have been experienced in history and how women have thrived in spite of their secondary status. The author offers valuable insights on the power of balancing the masculine and the feminine perspective in a world seemingly gone awry today.
