Publisher's Summary

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.

Waste of Time

I couldn't finish this book. It had no substance; it was just the ramblings of the writer that had no background or inspiration. It was a pitiful attempt at examining the history of women.

Very much about anthropology & archaeology

Not for me. Too much anthropology and archaeology. Very redundant. Point made, move on. Could have been said in far fewer words. Could have been less graphic and crude.
