What a book!

Finished The Women’s Room by Marilyn French. The novel follows Mira a woman restricted by her gender through her entire life, but slowly pushing against the bounds that constrain her. As she learns about herself and the world, she meets a variety of woman all experiencing the limitations and often the dangers of being woman. The story begins in the 50s with Mira’s traditional, mind-numbing marriage, and continues concluding in the 70s. Seriously a fantastic book.
