Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the first women to graduate from Oxford University, Dorothy Sayers pursued her goals whether or not what she wanted to do was ordinarily understood to be "feminine.' Sayers did not devote a great deal of time to talking or writing about feminism, but she did explicitly address the issue of women's role in society in the two classic essays collected here.

Central to Sayers's reflections is the conviction that both men and women are first of all human beings and must be regarded as essentially much more alike than different. We are to be true not so much to our sex as to our humanity. The proper role of both women and men, in her view, is to find the work for which they are suited and to do it. Though written several decades ago, these essays still offer in Sayers's piquant style a sensible and conciliatory approach to ongoing gender issues.

Synopsis:

In her lifetime, Dorothy Sayers practices her feminism by keeping in mind her humanity — by doing exactly what she wanted to do, whether or not that was ordinarily understood to be bfeminineb She did not devote a great deal of time to talking or writing about feminism, but in the essays included here she did address herself particularly to the subject of the role of women in society.

Central to both essays is the authorbs conviction that both men and women are first of all human beings, and must be regarded and treated as essentially much more alike than different. Thus the primary task confronting each one of us is not to be true to our sex, but to our humanity.
