    1. Now available EN FRAN AIS here I don t know what s the most horrifying really the narrow minded and downright stupid misconceptions all these so called geniuses spread about women through History, or the fact that many people cough politicians cough still perpetuate parts of these offensive stereotypes Jacky Fleming both quotes some delightful opinions from our much beloved geniuses, like Charles Darwin or Jean Jacques Rousseau because I m not chauvinistic I mean, have you read mile ou de l duca [...]

    2. This one is sodd accurate.d sadly sad If you re a person who think the most probable is that you know that, in the human kind history, women were relegate to minnor roles because the believe that they were incapable of think or doing things Even the greatest minds of every generation or something like that believed that women don t have the brain to do something than clean and mostly educate children.Butwhy this book like me so much I mean, there s a lot of book that tell all the misconceptions [...]

    3. Uma leitura r pida e cheia de sarcasmo sobre o motivo de n o encontrarmos muitos nomes de mulheres quando estudamos a hist ria da humanidade.

    4. Digital copy gently provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review My feeble tiny spongy brain feel like fainting and a bit histerical after reading this enlightening book about the historical vision of women from many ejem well knowing men The sad issue here, people, is that women keep getting the worst deal minor wages, pricey medical insurances, and others And face it, women are STILL seen as odd because we are single.And yes, many awesome women do amazing things everyday But we almos [...]

    5. A unique tongue in cheek take on the history of women I loved the sarcasm Here are some of my favourite lines In the Older Days there were no women which is why you don t come across them in history lessons at school.In the 700 years between Hildegard of Bingen and Jane Austen women writing was frowned upon, because it required thought, which interfered with childbirth.Women found lifting a pen very tiring as it caused chlorosis which disrupted blood flow and in some cases led to uterine prolaps [...]

    6. Thank you to NetGalley and Andrew McMeel Publishing for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.The Trouble with Women by Jacky Fleming is supposed to be a funny, sarcastic, take on the reasons why women don t appear in history books Unfortunately, while the author might have written the truth about why women were not written about in history, the book wasn t funny, sarcastic, or tongue in cheek and I have a hard time believing that anyone else could possibly think so I found the writing to be b [...]

    7. 2016 AtY Reading Challenge A book with a great opening line In the Older Days there were no women which is why you don t come across them in history lessons at school There were men and quite a few of them were Geniuses.Then there were a few women but their heads were very small so they were rubbish at everything apart from needlework and croquet In the 700 years between Hildegard of Bingen and Jane Austen women writing was frowned upon, because it required thought, which interfered with childbi [...]

    8. Love this Funny and scathing Buying this for all my female friends immediately.One of my favourites of 2016, in the category Best Funny Feminism kirstylogan best books

    9. This graphic novel was on my most anticipated list and although it s very small format and has only 128pgs I am so happy I bought and read this This is a humorous and eye opening take on the history of women, or rather the way history has blocked out women Every page has a small story, quote or point its making, and each one is satirical, funny or engaging in some way One of the first we hear about, for example, is that Darwin thought women to be feeble and have smaller heads so they couldn t ha [...]

    10. I love my history with a snide of snark And does author Jacky Fleming ever deliver in The Trouble With Women In this season of unbridled misogyny on display on the campaign trail, Fleming s book provides the perfect antidote This book, illustrated with winsome cartoons, recounts how genius after genius Charles Darwin, Sigmund Freud, philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau, philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, philosopher Immanuel Kant, critic John Ruskin Pierre de Fr dy, Baron de Coubertin, the founder of [...]

    11. I don t think I ve ever spluttered so much at a graphic novel This was tongue in cheek hilarious.A few personal favourites of mine Women weren t allowed out at night because of their poor night vision They were also too emotional to take anywhere so mostly they stayed in and wept, sometimes hysterically Women were concerned about their skirts getting caught up in the wheels of bicycles , and sat astride wearing Bloomers which turned them into lesbians One girls had learned sixty different embro [...]

    12. Update several photos added to reviewThis is a really fun illustrated book or should I say book of illustrations For anyone who likes sarcasm you should love this book A really fast read with way over the top sarcastic humour about how women were treated and thought of before the 20th century Fun quick read I got this book free on Netgalley in an exchange for an honest review This was definitely worth my time P.S Some time after reviewing I received a lovely gift from the publishers, I ll post t [...]

    13. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes This was fun and I grinned a lot while reading, but nothing laughing out loud as my feeble minded, tiny head would never be able to grasp it all On a serious note this booklet, it is too short to actually call it a book, makes fun of sexism by explaining historical visions on women from people nowadays considered geniuses The sad part is of course, that while it is immediately clear now that these are all rubbish, they have held back generations, cen [...]

    14. Fabulous mockery and educational of history s intense misogyny A best of 2016 for me Much than a mere comic strip In fact, it s a rather cohesive theme all the way through Jumps around in timeline but easily read as a continuous strip from start to finish Jacky Fleming is a genius I d recommend for junior high or high school history classes A fun changeup from dull textbook reading Thank you to the publisher for the free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    15. My only issue with this, if you can even call it an issue, is that it seemed to have ended so abrubtly Aside from that I was living for how shady this book is Each page is dripping with sarcasm that is equally entertaining, appalling and informative.Honestly, women are amazing and utterly badass The trouble with them is that they will not take your bullshit for so long without revolting about it at some point.

    16. Disclaimer ARC via Netgalley I should also note that I read this via Adobe Digital Editions, and for some reason each page took quite a bit of time of load This no doubt explains some of my frustration On the one hand, this is a funny book about why women get written out of history On the other hand, it is a joke that goes on for too long I don t usually say this, but if this book had been saying half its length, it would have been funnier Flemings tongue in cheek look at how men and society vie [...]

    17. This is a very quick read It took me less than 3o minutes to finish It s a satirical look at the history of female genius basically, 117 pages of biting sarcasm It is equal parts funny and infuriating, and features black and white illustrations on every page It s a great little book to flip through if you want to have a good gripe session about the unfairness of female history I would also recommend it as a gift for a female friend.

    18. I laughed until I WEPT It s so funny because it s so true One for every feminist Please note this review is meant as a recommendation only Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, without asking permission from me first Thank you

    19. Smart, snarky, dark satire look at the way women have been thought of and marginalized through the ages, in cartoon form my only complaint was that it was too short and ended way too soon

    20. Treffend kort boek dat ik impulsief kocht in De Groene Waterman De schrijfster en illustrator overtuigde de lezer met heerlijke, kritische humor vanuit het standpunt van de nietige en bijzonder emotionele vrouw De cynische tekst werd ondersteund door grappige illustraties.

    21. In the 700 years between Hildegard of Bingen and Jane Austen, women writing was frowned upon becase it required thought, which interfered with childbirth Women found lifting a pen very tiring as it caused chlorosis which disrupted blood flow and in some cases led to uterine prolapse Or was that the corsets This was a light and short take on how women have been bullied throughout history and why they have been deemed too incompetent to deserve a place in history books.The book is built around old [...]

    22. A funny and biting satire on how women have been left out of history and relegated to their own sphere by ridiculous notions of femininity and masculinity Several male geniuses are targeted for their ridiculous theories Ironies, double standards, and plain ridiculousness es are pointed out, such as Women s hands are weak, so they can t hold paint brushes long enough to create great art, yet at the same time women are also slaves and work in coal mines.Read my full review at wildmoobooks 2016 12 [...]

    23. I absolutely loved this book It s an easy and highly enjoyable read on history s sexist double standards and invisibilization of women mainly focusing on the 18th 20th Centuries , and the style, both regarding the text and the lovely illustrations both by Jacky Fleming , is full of an awesome feminist snark that is on point Highly recommended.

    24. You may have a lot of questions about women in history The main one is probably why there were no women back in days of geniuses like Darwin or Schopenhauer Or you may wonder why you never learned about women in school Or if you learned about some women at school, why only about three of them This book will answer you questions and even In The Trouble with Women, feminist artist Jacky Fleming illustrates how the opinions of supposed male geniuses, such as Charles Darwin who believed that women [...]

    25. Hehehehe, oh my days I loved The Trouble with Women by Jacky Fleming It is a satirical look about the development of women in a man s world It is told through hilarious illustrative representations which had me howling out loud.It is sad that in these modern times that a book like this still seems so relevant but seeing as men still earn than women in the workplace for doing the exact same job and seeing how girls playing certain sports is often viewed as a novelty I guess we can still see how [...]
