Egalia's Daughters

Egalia's Daughters

A Satire of the Sexes

Reminiscent of Orwell and Huxley’s dystopian novels, this classic of women’s literature is an intelligent and well-written contribution to the sex-role debate.

Welcome to the land of Egalia, where gender roles are topsy-turvy as “wim” wield the power and “menwim” light the home fires. This re-telling of the prototypical coming-of-age novel will have readers laughing out loud and wondering who should prevail: poor Petronius, who wants more than anything to cruise the oceans as a seawom; or his powerful and protective mother Director Bram, who rules her family with an authoritarian righteousness. But for better or for worse, as the masculist party begins to organize and protest, the landscape of Egalia threatens to change forever. More than just a humorous romp, Egalia’s Daughters poses the provocative question of whether the culprit in gender subjugation is gender itself or power-no matter who wields it.
