Interesting yet Short
Discusses how removing women from the story of humanity causes problems in our views of our own history and gives examples in ancient American sites and societies. I thought this to be very level headed and carefully written yet a bit short.
The narrator had a good voice, but the speed at which she was recorded was waaaay to fast, even at half speed.

Women in prehistory
Well researched and thought out. Lots of information about what it probably was like to be a woman in different cultures/tribes before the conquest by Europeans. Loved it!
