A thought-provoking book exploring gender equality by Jerry Schafer

LONG BEACH, Ca. – Author Jerry Schafer’s book, “Woman” raises awareness about women’s equality. It’s about working to ensure that girls and women worldwide have equal opportunities for education and employment, that they can live free from violence and suppression, and the continued battle against discrimination and stereotyping. 

Schafer writes a thought-provoking book exploring gender equality and women in society. Women: Down Through the Ages, How Lies Have Shaped Our Lives is a capsule summary of civilization under men’s thumbprint. An advocate for women in general, he explores the difference in the way that women are treated and portrayed through the media and society as unfair. 

It is a light-hearted but brutally honest review, Schaefer gives a run-down of details of how women have been forbidden from progress – from religious customs that have metastasized to define social and familial roles, to the violence, political manipulation, and fear tactics that have been employed to maintain patriarchal control. Schaefer gives a no-holds-barred argument and backs it up with data, relying on historical records, scientific research, and keen observations to showcase the huge shift that occurred as “civilization” took hold. 

His conclusion? “If you want to lift humanity, empower women.” Schaefer’s book is an illuminating examination of a vitally important topic. It is a moving, honest, and surprisingly down-to-earth read.
