Dancing Between Two Worlds: Essays on Navigating the Patriarchy is a collection of essays that take a critical look through an anthropological lens of women's role in a patriarchal society. It is a book designed to challenge long-standing views of what it means to be a woman in a man's world, tackling a range of topics from difficulties in the work force and house duties, to sexual assault and objectification. It also highlights the discrepancy in how children are raised, with "boys just being boys" while young girls are shamed, pressured, and victim blamed. With over twenty years of anthropological study of women's culture within a patriarchal society, and years more of personal experience as a woman growing up in the second half of the twentieth century, Mabel Macdonald doesn't hold back as she spurs a call to action for ALL readers to help women realize an equal standing among their male counterparts. Following the heels of the Me Too movement, women's equality has never been more relevant, and Dancing Between Two Worlds finds its own voice among the millions of other women struggling to navigate their roles within patriarchal America.
