This book is a liberal feminist text. The author analyzes the many negative effects of male domination, not only on women in particular but on the welfare of the human race as a whole. Rather than considering what is appropriate masculine or feminine behaviour, we should investigate what it is to be human. In separate chapters she discusses family, art, literature, games and sports, ethics and religion, education, fashion, law and government, crime and punishment, politics and warfare, and industry and economics. In each case she shows how the domineering male influence has caused grievous problems.
