The Indignities of Being a Woman (audio) Indignities of Being a Woman; Crystal Q., Dhr. Seven (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

It’s the 21st century, so why are women -- who constitute 51% of the world's population -- being treated like second class citizens?

This audiobook traces the history of womanhood with candor as it investigates how much things have or have yet to change for females.
Do we really need this? I'm doing all right.
By carefully X-raying areas such as body image, marriage, mental illness, fashion, and politics, it examines what it was like to be a woman in the past versus what it’s like now, when women are constantly told equality between the sexes exists. But reality proves otherwise.
It’s the brainchild of two childless comedians. Merrill Markoe is a multi-award-winning comedy writer whose credits span television, magazines, and books. She has four Emmy Awards, one for each of her dogs.

Megan Koester has written for VICE, Jezebel, and The Guardian, and has a basic cable acting credit. The two writers -- a comedy veteran and an emerging talent -- intersperse their dry wit with their own experiences of being long-suffering feminists in the modern world. More + AUDIO
