Terrible. Lesbian propaganda at its worst.

Review: Damned Whores And God's Police: The Colonization Of Women In Australia

User Review  - Brad - Goodreads

Excellent book comparing what Anne Summers believes to be Damned Whores and God's Police. Helpful in learning about feminist historians and what other peoples views are from the past. Sure you could read the intro, but puts the history of women in Australian history into perspective. Read full review
