Who Cooked the Last Supper? overturns the phallusy of history and gives voice to the untold history of the world: the contributions of millions of unsung women.

Men dominate history because men write history. There have been many heroes, but no heroines. Here, in Who Cooked the Last Supper?, is the history you never learned--but should have!

Without politics or polemics, this brilliant and witty book overturns centuries of preconceptions to restore women to their rightful place at the center of culture, revolution, empire, war, and peace. Spiced with tales of individual women who have shaped civilization, celebrating the work and lives of women around the world, and distinguished by a wealth of research, Who Cooked the Last Supper? redefines our concept of historical reality.

I study science. Science has never shaken my faith. History does because it show's how no idea is truly original. And how we did have women worshiped but with the advent of monotheism we find the suppression of women. Her argument is very strong. This is the first book I've read in women's studies. Great book. It really does teach a lot and makes you see things differently. When I finally saw "The Dinner Party" by Judy Chicago it was like this book all over again.

I can see how some can take the harshness of the words of the book as a way of bashing males. Yet, the same can be said about all history written by someone elses' hand and the minorities who are written to be inferior within the winners tales. You are reading anger at the exclusion her-story against our history. We can see beyond that and try to glean some type of knowledge.
