Highby expertly cuts apart the 5000-year history of the war on women so that she can decode and explain the ancient - deliberately difficult and elitist – historical jargon for the sake of the intelligent general reader. Highby surprises us by showing how the war on women always played out as parallel to a war against Nature, as well as a class war. Therefore, the war devalues Nature, slaves, and lower-class men as well as women. This war influenced the Renaissance Spirit/Matter split with its witch burnings. It applies to current Darwinian versus Creationism arguments, too.
