A Man In A Woman's World

A Man In A Woman's World by Jackie Hayden €11.99 [plus P & P]

A Man in A Woman's World is a highly personal and revealing story in which the author Jackie Hayden, reflects on the time he spent inside what is almost exclusively a female domain...

Jackie spent eight years on the Management Committee of a Rape Crisis Centre, including four as Chairperson. Many of his experiences were extremely positive, but along the way he became increasingly aware of what he saw as a deeply-rooted strain of often virulent anti-male sexism that was accepted by many women in the Rape Crisis Network.

In a powerful and frequently unsettling book, Hayden argues that this hostility to men is no less pernicious than male sexism towards women.
