According to the Book of Genesis, God first created man. This justified treating women as inferior.
Until this book.

Elaine Morgan argues for equal role of women in human evolution. This text in feminist history starts with the demolition of the Biblical myth that woman was an afterthought to the creation of man. It is a useful work in Women’s Studies and Anthropology.

The Descent of Woman is a pioneering work, the first to argue for the equal role of women in human evolution. On its first publication in 1972 it sparked an international debate and became a rallying-point for feminism, changing the terminology of anthropologists forever. Starting with her demolition of the Biblical myth that woman was an afterthought to the creation of man, Elaine Morgan rewrites human history and evolution.
