    • I think the premise of women revolting against the abusive men and male dominated society and setting up their own nation is fascinating This story and its timely elements captured my attention.Key points observations The women who form a new society ultimately behave like men Some of them become totalitarian and narrow, stubborn and aggressive, and defensive and irrational While these behaviors or attitudes aren t necessarily male or female, I wonder if the book intends a certain fatalism here [...]
