I just discovered this book and have ordered a copy. Reading through the website info I now know what a terrific contribution this book is to women's history worldwide. My own book published May 2009 is based on the "woman is inferior" belief. "The Secret History of Weeds: What Women Need To Know About Their History" disputes the inferiority belief plus refutes Martin Luther's classifying females as "weeds" in 1533. I will access your site again once I have read this book. Am looking forward to it!

Jack's 1976 departure to the BBC opened up the key opportunity of my life because I got the job he vacated with Hibernia. More than 32 years later and after a journalism career that has brought me around Europe to Canada and back, I regard it as the best job I ever had because of the investigative, daring writing we were allowed and encouraged to undertake at a crucial time in Irish journalism. I also recall with appreciation and fondness the warm and ready support I got from 'yer man' in Belfast as a 'cub' and I have no doubts that those halcyon days of Hibernia provided the fundamental skills and ethics that guided my career and that I know guided Jack's. We sorely miss journalists of the calibre of the Hollands (Jack and Mary RIP). By the way, though, while Brian Trench was certainly the 'key man' during my early days in Hibernia, John Mulcahy was both owner and editor of the paper.

Jack what a life you led - not a bad example to the rest of us who shared with you part of our lives at St Thomas's and were influenced by people like McLaverty & Heaney. Your work is a great achievement and in it you will live on.

I have just finished reading Misogyny...I have always brushed of feminist views from my own as I never understood the full magnitude of our history. This book was a fantastic eye opener, it was beautifully written and exposed the realities in our past and even present society. Thank you for writing the book, it's concise nature makes it available to all women...and men of couse, and because of this I have recommended it to everyone i have come across in recent weeks :}

I study American Studies in Germany and have recently started to focus on gender issues. Then I came across this book and I have just started reading it. But from what I read so far, I can say that it is one of the most important books I have ever read. It kind of opend my eyes as women my age tend to forget about the past and to ignore signs of misogyny in everyday life.

I haven't been to visit the site in quite a while, although I think of Jack often. We have moved to Spain and haven't been back to New York for over a year. I still miss my mate Jack and hope that he's doing well where ever he is...As I get a little older I miss having someone like Jack to help guide me through, it's hard to find friends like him in this world. Good luck mate, William

Just finished "Hope Against History". Spent 3 weeks in NI last June. A very fair and thorough history. Appreciate that the names of the many victims are mentioned, they must not be forgotten. Walked both the Shankill and Falls Roads, unforgettable! Walked the Bloody Sunday route in Derry. Mr. Holland reminds me of another author too soon departed, Robert Ruark. They both left a void that has yet to be filled.

I am so grateful for this book! I have spent the last several years researching the roots of misogyny. I have only found little essential pieces in many different books. Jack brigns it all together in one brilliant, impeccable resource. Jai Ma!

Jenny, your dad sounds like the new paradigm of the balanced masculine. What a wonderful rold model for you and for all of us.

Sending you and your family many blessings!
In Unity
