THE GREATEST ABUSE OF ALL TIME
Man’s inhumanity to man is exceeded only by man’s inhumanity to woman. This goes back to Adam and Eve in the mythical origins of the human race and continues to present real-life events. Misogynist atrocities are reported almost daily from somewhere in the world: honour killings and the stoning of women in the Middle East; patriarchal exclusion of girls from education on every continent; rampant domestic violence in so-called civilised countries such as America, England and Australia.
The feminist movement has achieved a fair measure of reform in the Western world but still has far to go. And it’s not getting there fast enough for Justine, the driving force of a new crusade to speed the process. It is Justine who gives this novel all the reality of today’s sunrise and adds a new dimension to this scourge of our existence.
