Dame Winifred Mary Beard is a renowned expert on ancient Rome and a major voice of the Feminist Movement over the past 50 years. For several decades, she was a professor at England’s most prestigious universities, including King’s College and the University of Cambridge. She also contributed to a number of BBC educational programs, making her a recognizable figure to the general public. She has also won numerous academic prizes, including a Wolfson History Prize and a Bodley Medal. In Women & Power, Beard provides a modern take on misogyny and women’s unique challenges in social positions of power, but also traces a history of misogyny back to ancient Rome. The work is noted for its stern yet accessible response to misogynist trolls. For Women & Power, The New Yorker hailed Mary Beard the “Troll Slayer.” It is a concise and powerful response to hatred toward women, written for a popular audience.
