內容簡介


「閱讀這本典雅、有精美插畫的書很愉快」─愛蓮‧秀華特,華盛頓時報

「一本現代的女權主義經典」─瑞秋‧庫克,觀察者報

「用她清楚的解析和辛辣的幽默,這個自稱多話女人的學者證明,現今在公開場合演講的權力並不只是留給男人而已」─柯克斯評論

說到要讓女人閉嘴,西洋文化可是已經有好幾千年的實踐。

本書是將英國知名的古典學教授瑪麗‧畢爾德一系列的演講內容集結成冊,書中畢爾德從古代文化講到現代社會,從梅杜莎講到雅典納、希拉蕊和梅克爾等掌權的女人,來講古希臘、古羅馬的女人不允許在公開場合演講,亞里斯多德甚至說女人的聲音就是弱勢的代表,如今公開熱烈演講的女人還是會被形容成聲音刺耳,女人究竟如何被奪走公開演講的權力,還有女人和權力之間的關係,畢爾德想知道,如果女人掌權不被接受,難道我們不就應該重新定義權力嗎?

畢爾德是劍橋大學紐納姆學院的古典學教授,除了鑽研古典學、西洋文化,同時也是個女權主義者,她常在媒體上表達自己的意見,提出的理論偶爾會有爭議性引起大眾注意。

Why the popular resonance of 'mansplaining' (despite the intense dislike of the term felt by many men)? It hits home for us because it points straight to what it feels like not to be taken seriously: a bit like when I get lectured on Roman history on Twitter. Britain's best-known classicist Mary Beard, is also a committed and vocal feminist. With wry wit, she revisits the gender agenda and shows how history has treated powerful women. Her examples range from the classical world to the modern day, from Medusa and Athena to Theresa May and Elizabeth Warren. Beard explores the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, considering the public voice of women, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template. With personal reflections on her own experiences of the sexism and gendered aggression she has endured online, Mary asks: if women aren't perceived to be within the structures of power, isn't it power that we need to redefine? From the author of international bestseller SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome.
