Don’t miss a special evening with award-winning science journalist and author, Angela Saini, celebrating her new release, The Patriarchs: The Origins of Inequality only at the Museum of Science, Boston.
In this bold and radical new book, Saini goes in search of the true roots of gendered oppression, uncovering a complex history of how it first became embedded in societies and spread across the globe from prehistory into the present. Traveling to the world’s earliest known human settlements, analyzing the latest research findings in science and archaeology, and tracing cultural and political histories from the America’s to Asia, she overturns simplistic universal theories to show that what patriarchy is and how far it goes back really depends on where you live.
Following a sold-out conversation celebrating her acclaimed book Superior: The Return of Race Science, Saini returns to the Museum with an evening of conversation examining her timely and groundbreaking new release.
Book signing to follow, copies of The Patriarchs: The Origins of Inequality for sale on-site.
